Royce, explain to Max that when Royce does it for you, Max is asking
you to clean his tummy for him like you were his mother. But since you
aren't a cat, you do it by petting and rubbing not with your tongue.

But Thomas is not his mother. Max is his brother and so if Thomas 
touches Max in that position, Max starts to wrestle. But since Thomas
doesn't have claws and teeth, Max will win. 

The way for THOMAS to win is to scritch Max under the chin, top of his
head and ONLY under the chin and top of his head, giggling and telling
him in a quiet voice what a good kitty he is.
