Golden Goddess has this funny spot at the base of her tail that feels rough so I kind of scritch it against fur direction; her whole body seems to chitter forwards an backwards. It stops as soon as I stop but I have never seen a cat do this before (though I doubt that I have scritched a cat like this before so...). If anyone understands what this is about, please elucidate me; it is so odd, I am tempted to take her to the vet to see what a professional thinks.

How can a life-long cat person have missed that this is a 'sweetspot'? Cat skin is soooo weird but you don't know it unless you play with one of those hairless cats.
