Cats are often highly sensitive to being scratched near the base of the tail, probably because of the concentration of nerves there. The sensation may be something like being tickled, a little bit of scratching is enjoyable, a lot can be over-stimulating or even painful. Each cat has different responses and tolerance levels for lower back scratching. Note that cats that seem hyper-sensitive or in pain when touched in that area could be suffering from impacted anal sacs, skin allergies, or other conditions requiring veterinary attention.

Have you ever had an itch that you just couldn’t scratch? There is such a relief when someone scratches that itchy spot for you. This cute kitty is in heaven and experiences the state of nirvana when its owner scratches just above the tail. Unfortunately amidst its euphoria, the itchy feline failed to notice it was about to fall off the couch, and she did!

Cats have this spot on their back, where, if you scratch it, she goes absolutely insane.The spot is a few inches up from her tail, above her legs. Next time you are giving kitty some love by stroking its back, notice how the feline raises its but higher and higher in the air. This is a happy maneuver to show it appreciates the scratch, and is often followed by sticking the tail straight up and maneuvering its butt right in your face. Kitty isn't trying to tell you off, it's a sign of affection!
