Default Question About Cat Behavior...

I know that cats hunch their backs, bristle their fur and spit when
they are threatened by other animals, but my kitten likes to hunch his
back when I'm petting him. Why does he do this, if this is behavior
normally associated with fear? TIA

He's pushing back on your hand. Unless you are referring to the automatic
raising of the butt when a certain area near the tail is touched.
