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?
