Cat Parent Achievement Unlocked: Both Garrus and Charlie enjoyed being brushed. (Previously, they shied away from the brush itself.) There was a considerable amount of purring, rolling, belly flaunting, and head bonks until I resumed brushing.
“Hi Mama! I found your window seat. May I have pets now?” ~Garrus
Boudicca sprawled out on the window seat and revved up her purr machine when she simply saw me holding her purple brush. Her coat looks even shinier after a brushing!
