Starbeans vs. The Scratching Post

Starbeans is very funny about our cats' scratching post.

He gets right next to it, props himself up, puts out his little chubby hand and gets *this close* to touching it, then pulls away. Then again: *almost touch*, pull away, *almost touch*, pull away, and so on and so forth. He'll do this 4, 5, 6 times before actually touching it; when he finally makes contact, he jerks back like it is hot molten lava, or a thousand prickly cactus spikes, makes a "haaaa" breathing noise and smiles.

He's 9 months old. Where, in his little baby brain, did this come from?
