Briar demonstrates affection by turning her head face away from yours, raising a shoulder and saying, “Mmmm-nice,” while she rubs your arm or back. If she’s really serious she’ll knock her knees together and scoot her backside out.

In this shot she is actually just thinking about hugging Barnaby the cat. He has yet to really let her do an official “Briar Hug”. She has, however let him give her a “Barnaby Boo Boo” on her right hand…no pictures, would feel too weird to post injuries.
