Making good use of the scent glands around the head as well as urine spray marking really confirms their presence, as you well know Des. A very nice behaviour capture in sweet light.

Nice kitty! ;). Reminds me of how domestic cats like a rub, though likely for a different reason. Beautiful light and delightful capture.
