You just know your cat trusts you when you can go to sleep with her tail in
your hand Or when she wraps her tail around your wrist and you just nod
off to sleep (hearing purrs the whole while).. It's love!

Well, Jake sometimes sleeps with his paws in my hair, but it ain't love.
Its body heat and his much preferred daddy is nearly bald.

That is trust, all right. Even after 3 and a half years here Ketzl is very
fussy about who can -- or better put: cannot -- touch his tail. He is getting
better, though. He doesn't complain nearly as much as he used to.

On these colder nights, I consider myself very very fortunate when he decides
it will be okay to crawl on top of me and take a nap -- always a nap, never
planning, it seems, to spend the night there. Just as well: he's a bit on the
heavy side. Still, it feels great on a cold night.

LOL Persia sometimes combs my hair with her teeth, but she has much more
fur than I have (thin) hair. I do agree we snuggle together for warmth.
But I don't let her hold my tail G

I often have Stinky's tail in my hand when I fall asleep-- he also
wraps his tail around my arm, or even my neck! The thing that really
amazes me is how he puts his paw into my hand, and lets me hold it.

The tail is not a big deal for Cali, the tummy is another matter. If she's
really relaxed, I can put my hand between her back legs and rest my palm on
her tummy or chest. True nirvana is giving her a reverse chin scritch with
my fingers, while keeping my hand on her chest. This is always worth a few
extra decibels from the Purr motor. If she's not relaxed, I'll get a bunny
kickin.

Awwwww.....!

My two who have long tails both love it when I comb them! (Their
tails, or any other part of them.)

My two who are Japanese Bobtails or mixes thereof do NOT like my hand
on their tails. (They feel weird anyway because the bones of the tail
curl around inside.) I love to watch those short-tailed cats switch
their tails though. They remind me of those cat clocks where the tail
moves by the second, and they make a most delightful thump.

You do not! want to be on the end of a bunny kick from Persia! I was
wounded... should have gotten a purple heart. Dang, that hurt. And I was
asleep, wasn't thinking... let my hand fall down on her oh so soft belly and
dammit! I was wounded! I still have the danged scars.

I periodically wake up with "inexplicable" shin, calf and ankle wounds.
Oddly, (or not) that's the general region where Ketzl sleeps.

Still, he's getting better about the tail thing. He's even begun to like
having it brushed. Now I need to work on brushing his belly without getting
the bunny kicks.

Speaking of kicks, sometimes when we play "string" the string (a ribbon,
actually; he doesn't know the difference) gets wound around him a few times
and after a brief pause while he contemplates the situation he sets off in
this series of running mule-kicks to try to dislodge the string. It's
hilarious. Whatta guy.

Cali keeps her claws in for the most part when Bunny Kickin. Provided you
get the point within the allotted time of course.
