Brushing your cat allows you to make a connection without hand contact. When a cat rubs their cheeks against a person or item they are marking their territories. The scent gland is located in the cat's cheeks. Use a long handled bath brush. It can remind the cat of it's Mom's raspy tongue. Brush the cat's cheeks and work your way under the cat's chin. Position your brush under the cat's chin and slowly rub from the tip of the chin back along to the throat. (Do not put any pressure on the throat area). When brushing remember to keep your speed slow. When brushing the shoulder let the cat rub against the brush. It is nice to see the cat warming up to you, some cats crane their heads up in appreciation.
