mating behaviour? and subcutaneous parasites?

So...I have a question about something Dill does...
When we rub the area right where her tail joins her body, Dill lifts her tail...the more we rub, the higher her tail goes. If we rub on either side of this area, she lifts her tail, as well as leaning her tail toward the side we are rubbing.
Does she do this just because it feels good to have her back scratched a little, or are we simulating some sort of mating ritual? And her lifting her tail like that is indicating receptivness????
Also, I'm wondering if PTS can also get filarial worms(?correct name?). I'm referring to the worms that live under the skin.
Does that type of worm remain fairly stationary, or do they move around a lot?
I'm wondering about an area on Dills side, that seems to be ever so slightly raised...but has not changed position over the last three days. I don't recall feeling it there prior to that.

Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Kim
