The Tender Side Of Amarula: Chin Scratches and Tummy Rubs!


Amarula would not want any of you to know this but–despite how she acts around Zulu and Frodo and how “ferocious” she likes to appear even regarding “the Human”–she is a very tender cat. One of her favorite things in the world is for me to hold her in my lap with her tummy exposed while she gets tummy rubs or chin scritches.

She especially loves when she gets tummy scratches while sitting with me outside watching the squirrels.

She positively melts when I rub her chin!

AMARULA: Hey! You’re not photographing this are you? I have a reputation to uphold!

Shhhhh. Don’t tell Amarula you know her secret!

    We won’t tell…
    Amarula I’m sure that deep in your heart you are a sweet girl !
    Abyssinian are usually great fan of belly rubs but I don’t really like it.

    That’s a reputation blown to bits. Oh you soft bellied tartlet, you! You do that when watching the squirrels??? Yeah right, leaving us mighty mancats to kill ’em!
    Oh you soft squidgy little kitten cat.

    We think that’s an incredible cover, Amarula. Phht. OBVIOUSLY, you’re waiting for your Mom to be complacent so you can rip her arm off. The most ferocious know how to bide their time so the enemy has no idea it’s coming. We bet that’s your strategy with the squirrels too! We must confess though, you are awfully cute and we totally buy your sweet act 😉 My Momma would be falling all over herself to pet you!

    We’ll keep the secret from Zulu and Frodo 🙂

    Aww I love seeing cats like this! Avery loves it when my husband does this to him, but certainly won’t sit for ages. Around 5 min at most. Too cute!
