Choose a quiet room and soothing ambiance to help your cat relax.
Set the Mood
Begin with light strokes so your cat gets comfortable with touch.
Use gentle petting and circular rubbing motions your cat enjoys.
Use Petting Motions
Knead and apply gentle pressure to shoulders, hips, legs, and neck.
Focus on Muscles
Gently extend legs and massage each paw to increase flexibility.
Limit to 5-10 minutes so your cat doesn't get overwhelmed or overhandled.
Keep Sessions Brief
Watch for signs of agitation like swishing tail or ears back.
