Large, strange looking cats, but catlike beings that are neither above nor below themselves.

Some cats lick themselves or the air when they get pets and scratches from people. Let's explore why this happens. If you are gently scratching an area of your cat's body that she can't reach herself, it might be dirty or itchy because it's escaped her careful grooming efforts. This happens commonly on the rear end and tail-head areas of cats that are overweight. When you touch that area, it can trigger an automatic desire for your cat to groom the spot, but since she can't reach it, she licks at the air or a part of her body that she can reach instead.
