People and fur people who are Disciples of The Leader Otis,
This is a sensitive topic, but one that I think is very important. Not many kitties talk about this openly, but as a relative newcomer to the phenomenon, I feel like the more we talk about this, the more likely it will be that we can find a cure. In case you do not know what I am talking about, let me show you.
It starts out innocently enough. You want to be brushed and your Guardian does as you silently command.
The Guardian does his or her duty well, and you reward them by leaning into the brush to show them that you are pleased.
The brushing continues and you really start to lose yourself a little bit… especially when they brush the cheeks… I LOVE IT WHEN THEY BRUSH THE CHEEKS!
The Guardian next brushes the top of your head and, although it is a little bit awkward, it still feels awesome!
But then something starts to change. The Guardian starts to move the brush backward and you think, “Uh-oh… here it comes.”
The brush feels pretty good on your back, but you are very aware that it keeps moving back along your body heading toward… the danger zone.
As it arrives at “the spot”, you brace yourself, vowing that this time will be it. This will be the time you will be able to resist and hopefully keep your dignity.
You feel it starting to happen, but still you think you can fight it. You think you can beat the odds and be the first cat ever to conquer EB. You resist with all your might, but it is no use. It happens anyway.
Yes… once again you experience the tragedy of Elevator Butt.
No one knows why Elevator Butt happens, they only know it has a devastating affect on the dignity of cats. I hold out hope that they will one day find a cure, but until that day I just want to tell kitties everywhere that this is not under your control so it is nothing to be ashamed of. So please, hold your heads high… even when you are involuntarily doing the same with your butts.
