Arthur is the itchiest guy I know. Seriously - if you want to be his friend, just scratch his butt vigorously for a few minutes, and he will love you for life. He's never happier than when your fingers are inches deep in his fur, firing up his nerve endings.
He's gotten into this bad habit, however, of assuming that you might be up for a backside session every few minutes if you're around: he'll approach with a smile, then present his bum and just stand there, head turned in your general direction. Scratch my butt? Sometimes he will do it a couple of times for good measure, whether you scratch him or not. To his credit, if you show no interest after a few minutes, he will piss off and go away.
Never hurts to try.
