Loving Bengal Cat Gives a Sleepy Dog a Good Head Massage By Way of ‘Making Biscuits’

In 2011, a very loving Bengal kitty named Katouscka gave a very tired Weimaraner named Willow a good head massage while gently “making biscuits” on the sleepy canine’s skull. According to their human Austin, the two animals have been getting on this way for a long time.

The cat started this practice when she was about 7 months old and has done so ever since. Willow is a very understanding and forgiving dog, but she seems to enjoy the cat “making dough” (this is a term for this paw cat practice). It’s amazing how these separate species relate to this extent, especially as they have always been depicted as sworn enemies. But the reality is that they are what we create. In a peaceful interactive non competitive situation there is mutual play. They are all part of the pack here…
