Listen To The Weird Sound This Cat Makes When His Back Is Rubbed

Once you hear it, it's hard to un-hear it.

No one has ever enjoyed anything the way this cat enjoys a back rub.

We all have that one friend who’s a little… too into everything. The one who laughs way too hard, who uses five or six heart-eyed emojis in one text, who gives a loud “YAAAAS QUEEN” for everything. This cat is that friend.

For most cats, getting a back rub is worth a purr or two, but not for this little weirdo. In this clip, posted by America’s Funniest Home Videos, a cat goes into a full-on serenade while his back is rubbed, making a sound like a Furby whose battery just ran out and wildly licking at the air. You have no chill, cat. No chill.

Come on, cat. We all know that getting scratched or rubbed feels pretty great, even if someone’s doing it with their sock foot. Just bring it down a notch or two. One emoji is enough. And save that “YAAAAS QUEEN” for a special occasion.

  • The cat is getting really annoyed and pissed off. That’s not funny kid. You’ll get scratched. Then your folks will give her to the shelter. That’s what parents do, blame the cat.

    • Yes I agree with you the cat was not singing it was mad! Not a happy cat I know I have two cats. So this was not funny!

    • Lol you people really need do some research before implying animal cruelty. She’s tickling a pad of nerves located at the base of the tail that triggers this reflexive behavior in cats, commonly known as “elevator butt” and more scientifically known as lordosis. Not all cats enjoy having the “sweet spot” stimulated (and if they don’t they are simply going to hiss at you, swat, and the run away), but when they do, their body language is exactly like the cat in the video — tail turned up stiffly (in an intact cat this posture says “mate with me” to other cats), tongue flicking uncontrollably, and loud purring or meowing. Some will slobber and nibble on your hand (or other cats) if they are present. So no, not a pissed off cat, just one with an exceptionally loud meow who likes getting his back scratched.
