Cats are notoriously picky when it comes to belly rubs, but every now and again you will find a fluffy little belly that loves to be tickled! If you meet a cat for the first time be very careful when it comes to belly rubs, unlike dogs an exposed stomach does not equal welcome to tummy town. For cats, an exposed stomach can be a sign of comfort in a familiar safe place, but this is not an invitation to touch it. Cats also roll onto their backs during fights, giving them a great position to attack!
For kittens like Remi, belly rubs have been in her life since she was 6 weeks old, and who knows, maybe earlier. Because of the association of love and attention with belly rubs, for Remi they are a good thing. This may not be the case for other cats! It certainly isn’t for Lolly, she will eat your hand! You have been warned.
So, the truth about cats is that they’re all different. Belly rubs for cats, are the same as any kind of touch for humans, there might be things you love and somethings you don’t. Whether there’s any real reason behind it or not, it’s just the way we are.
Here’s a video of the lovely Remi enjoying a belly rub for you to enjoy on this sunny Monday.
Thanks for stopping by, and we will see you in the next one!
Kiki, Lolly, & Remi.
