Why do cats show their belly? — 1 Comment

  1. Not all cats like belly rubs.
    Most of mine don’t. They prefer rear-end tail scratching.

    But, I have one colony feral that will present his belly to me for a brief rub (really brief). I take that as a sign of trust, because it’s such a vulnerable position. But, any other hands on with him is forbidden.
