I caught this tidbit on Animal Planet's 'Growing up Tiger' the other day. They mentioned how picking the tiger cub up by the scruff of the neck released endorphins into the system.
Well, I decided to try it out on the girls. Ella was nonplussed by it. I've always picked her up that way. Really doesn't seem to affect her one way or the other. In Greta's case, I've never really handled her that way in the past. She seems to love it. In fact, since I started to pick her up, lingering more each time, she wonít leave me alone. Always coming around rubbing against my legs and purring. Looks like Iíve unleashed a monster. :)
Anyone know anything about this?
I dated this girl once......:teeth

First, I'm so sorry to hear the kittens aren't doing well. :( I hope the vet can do something for them. I got Greta and Ella from a vet and I'm so glad I adopted them. With luck all of your daughterís charges will also be adopted.

Unk: I have never heard of grown cats being picked up by the scruff of their neck (other than by the pound) but I understand how it could make them happy as they would have memory of their mom doing the same thing.
UncleDavid: Happy Birthday Greta And Ella! I'll have a piece of cake in their honor!

JamieLee: I'm so sorry to hear the kittens are not well. I hope the vet is able to help them. Mr. Tootles was not in good condition when he and his siblings and mom were found. But we were able to fix one thing at a time and he's more than rebounded. Sending prayers and healing energy to the kittens!

That's Uncle David that was discussing picking his cats up that way.

I am temporarily the daddy of another Newf. He's being "rescued" by the regional Newf club--his family couldn't afford him and his vet bills (he has epilepsy.) I did the intake interview yesterday, and brought him home with me. He'll be going into a foster home soon, but until that's arranged, he'll stay here. Gustav and Bjorn were very good when everyone met. Lots of sniffing, no harsh words. Oscar is kind of stressed about leaving home, and spent at least half of the night barking, poor baby*. Evidently, Oscar wasn't listening when his former owner said that he was a picky eater, since this morning he ate his AND Bjorn's kibble. Bjorn didn't care; he's in a snit :( because he does not like his routines interupted and when he gets that way, he doesn't eat.
*OK, I'm not sure who I mean by "poor baby." Maybe Oscar, maybe me :lol
