Yep. Seems like it's sometimes the thing to do. My cat keeps jumping on the bathroom sink when I'm trying to put my contact lenses in, so the other day I cracked her upside the head.... Nah, just wanted to get yas goin, I'm a cat and animal lover... But I did kinda pat her butt to get her to move. When I did it she purred and rubbed against me, so I playfully did a slow drumroll sort of thing on her lower butt telling her again to get off the sink. She liked it, so I did it a little harder. Seemed the harder I smacked her butt (and of course I'm not hitting her hard enough to hurt her), the more she liked it. Was cracking me up. I walked away and she followed me wanting more. I of course had to google this, and found its a pretty common thing. Lots of YouTube videos on it too. Some cats seem to like to be spanked, and nobody really know why. Just thought I'd share. Now go spank your cat and see if he/she likes it. Cats all over the world are gonna love me for passing along this secret.
