People are brushing their cats with toothbrushes because they “remind them of their moms” and their responses are too sweet.

Yeah, you’ve read that correctly. Apparently, brushing  the adult kitty cat with a moist toothbrush mimics the sensation of  being groomed as a kitten by their mum, and by the  looks of  it, these cats love it! That perfect, pure pleasure. ūü•ļ As¬†much¬†as¬†I¬†love¬†seeing¬†a¬†cat¬†being¬†brushed¬†as¬†the¬†next¬†human,¬†how¬†effective¬†is¬†this¬†process,¬†really?¬†Can¬†this¬†actually¬†imitate¬†cats¬†being¬†groomed¬†by¬†their¬†mothers?!¬† I¬†wanted¬†to¬†call¬†in¬†some¬†experts¬†to¬†find¬†out.¬†Associate¬†vet¬†training¬†in¬†Arlington¬†,¬†Texas,¬†said¬†it¬†was¬†certainly¬†a¬†chance! He¬†added,¬†“While¬†I¬†can’t¬†really¬†place¬†myself¬†in¬†a¬†cat¬†‘s¬†mind¬†(what¬†a¬†world¬†it¬†will¬†be),¬†I¬†can¬†imagine¬†that¬†this¬†would¬†remind¬†them¬†of¬†being¬†groomed¬†by¬†their¬†mother¬†at¬†an¬†early¬†age.¬† Mother¬†would¬†generally¬†groom¬†her¬†kittens,¬†particularly¬†around¬†her¬†head¬† and¬†neck,¬†before¬†they’re¬†old¬†enough¬†to¬†groom¬†themselves. So,¬†as¬†the¬†owner¬†takes¬†on¬†the¬†task¬†of¬†grooming¬†their¬†pet,¬†it¬† might¬†definitely¬†reinforce¬†the¬†fact¬†that¬†they¬†are¬†a¬†mother-like¬†being,¬†or¬†at¬†least¬†a¬†friend. “While¬†not¬†quite¬†the¬†same,¬†most¬†of¬†the¬†toothbrushes¬†have¬†nylon¬†bristles¬†that¬†may¬†feel¬†very¬†close¬†to¬†the¬†keratin¬†spikes¬†(papillae)¬†that¬†offer¬†cat¬†tongues¬† that¬†feel¬†sandpaper.¬† These¬†hundreds¬†of¬†short,¬†backward-looking¬†spikes¬†are¬†generally¬†thought¬†to¬†assist¬†with¬†grooming¬†and¬†other¬† activities.” Veterinarian¬†who¬†shared¬†skepticism¬†that¬†this¬†will¬†possibly¬†bring¬†back¬†the¬†good¬†old¬†days¬†of¬†being¬†groomed¬†as¬†a¬†cat.¬†“We¬†can’t¬†speak¬†to¬†cats,¬†because¬†we¬† can’t¬†really¬†know¬†if¬†it¬†really¬†brings¬†back¬†the¬†memory¬†of¬†being¬†groomed. ”¬†However,¬†he¬†also¬†said¬†that¬†even¬†though¬†it¬†doesn’t¬†wake¬†up¬†any¬†nostalgic¬†memories,¬†“It’s¬†physical¬†stimulus,¬†and¬†it¬†brings¬†joy¬†to¬†the¬†animal.¬†It’s¬†social conduct. Much¬†like¬†we¬†love¬†massages,¬†cats¬†love¬†grooming! Luckily, using...
