Do other mammals get a similar enjoyment from petting as we get from scratching an annoying itch? Maybe a stronger version of it? Since dogs do emulate scratching themselves with their hind legs when they enjoy some good 'ol pettin'.

Also as an extra mini-question; are there any mammal species that does not react to any kind of petting?
