Massaging these areas can help your cat to relax, calm down after a stressful event and it can feel more love and care from you. Usually, cats enjoy soft, light touches that run along their body. As you give your cat a massage, stick to gentle motions that caress them rather than deep ones that could be tough on their bodies.

Tips to have a relaxing massage 

  • Be gentle –– check-in with your pet to make sure they’re comfortable.
  • Be strategic –– massage in circular motions starting at the torso and moving around to other areas of the body.
  • Be patient –– try not to rush, make sudden movements, or scold your pet during the massage session, remember it’s about making them feel safe and relaxed.
  • Be generous –– if your pet clearly enjoys their massage, treat them to an extra few minutes, and consider giving them their favorite treat after the session ends.
