Public Service Announcement

Did you know that when your human gives you scratches, their bodies release:

Serotonin:  fights depression
Oxytocin:  bonding hormone
Endorphins:  feeling of well being

The best way to get your human to give you scratches is to only offer snuggles while they're scratching.  When it stops, go all the way across the room to lay down--by yourself.

They'll reduce their stress and you'll both be happy!  You can read more here.
