9 Cats Giving Dogs Massages

"Making biscuits" is a delightful term that refers to the feline process of kneading paws against a soft surface, which looks somewhat like kneading dough (hence the nickname). Cats do this for multiple reasons, including stress-alleviation, marking territory, and creating a soft place to nap.

These particular cats are taking their kneading talents to the next level by giving some masterful back-rubs to their canine friends:

1. Snow is cold, so massaging is necessary to warm up those muscles.

2. Massage time is a great opportunity to discuss the gossip of the day, such as how many toys are hidden under the couch.

3. Some massage recipients may never show their appreciation, no matter what you do.

4. The humans might not fully understand, but that's hardly your concern.

5. True friends will give you back rubs when you've had a ruff day.

6. It's important to stretch before digging under the fence, or you might need some deep-tissue massaging.

7. Even voluptuous folds need some extra TLC every now and then.

8. Tension in the lower haunches can require more persistent kneading.

9. Don't get overzealous and start aggressively massaging your friend as they're trying to sleep. They will probably be very confused.

You've had a long day of being attentive masseuses, Cats. Now it's time for you to treat yourselves!
