Cat massage! It’s not just for ‘ol “Champion” and his groovy, whisker-alert, cat-lady owner anymore. Plenty of cat owners have submitted their own feline masseuse moves for Internet approval—-all of them creepy! I don’t know why people who film their in-house cat massages for use as instructional video strike me as so perverse. Maybe it’s because they think they know exactly what a fucking cat is thinking? Whatever, they like it! So grab hold of Mr. Sniggles and commence subjecting him to the borderline-inappropriate touching tips of complete strangers.
