Live and learn!

I learned a new word yesterday (or more correctly a new expression) to describe something I have seen most days for several decades.

The word in question is Lordosis (or more correctly Lordosis behaviour)is describes the presentation response of female cats in oestrus. Also tickle a cat at the base of its tail and it raises its bottom or at least mine do

And that is Lordosis behaviour. 24 hours ago I didn't know that...

Sorry, I'll do a better post later!

"Sorry, I'll do a better post later!" Yes, please do!! :)

Is there not a similar word but with a very different meaning: "lordoverus"?

Can't say I've ever tickled a cat there. I usually just tweak its jaws and the nape of its neck. It seems to like that.

And here I thought Lordosis was Madonna's kid's name.

Er... confusing that. I read where the cats, when there backs are being tickled near the base, raise their behinds to be licked.

The male ones do that as well.

Well, whatever.
