Here I am doing TTouch with a fearful cat using the back of a hand of a back scratcher. It is helpful to touch a cat very gently with a tool such as this in order to give them more space, so that both the cat and you can feel safer. Eventually, when it is safe to do so, you can work your hand down the back scratcher to touch with your hand a bit, but this cat was not quite ready to do this. It is much better for the animal to err on the side of caution. Do short sessions, giving the cat frequent breaks. Please see my website, http://healingenergyforanim..., for more info.
