    I also grew up with a lot of dogs and have seen some of our cats resort to heavy purring when coming in close contact with a dog that appears bashfully playful. It actually throws the dogs off balance in a sense of confusement and causes them to be more gentle. I've always thought that to be quite interesting.
    I am backing this... All science-y and stuff.

    I'd say s/he enjoys the attention, not necessarily the spanking, but will take the spanking if that's how you show attention. Go easier on it and see if you get even more purring and 'love' if you just pet it properly. I'm betting you will. Also keep in mind that a cat touched near its tail is always going to have the reflex of raising that part of their body. It's a reflex they can't escape, whether they like it or not (I have one that really almost attacks if you go near that part of her body..but she still raises it )

    I also have several cats that take well to 'spanking', I think it can often alleviate itching in the fur of certain parts, if not done too hard though a good brushing is likely to be more effective. Purring tends to be done in communication yes, and can be done under severe stress. It's hypothesized that it is to appease the potential dangerous predator and soothe oneself in the process. My cats both purr to themselves and to me, but don't always purr when they're clearly relaxing and enjoying themselves.

    I hope you're typing this with an Australian accent.

    You mean on a keyboard that is made in Australia?

    I think mine is made in China, so I type with a chinese accent.

    Chinese? The Chinese only live for killing. You know what their favorite kind of killing is? I'll tell you what. When they finish someone off who has no idea what's coming to them. Dying is the last thing on the victim's mind. They're so comfortable, they think some magical safety net will swoop them away from death's clutches.

    So don't go telling me about those Chinese, man. I damn sure don't want anything to do with your filthy filthy Chinese tongue.

    In what part of the world do you live in, exactly? I'll make a mental note to avoid that part as best I can. :P

    Because you totally turned this thread into a nature documentary when it should have been a porno.
