Wow I could have written this myself! My NFC girl Chilli does EXACTLY this. I find “the flop” so endearing.when she comes in bed in the morning and I am petting her back, she will do this little "flop" thing and fall to her side, and as she falls she will rabbit kick my hand to her stomach then hold it there with her leg and start purring.
That's so AWESOME...My eldest Kitty's name is Link!View attachment 214058
Pet the belly at your peril.
Link will full on attack if you try to pet his belly(photo). Rocket dislikes the belly petting but it's more of a squiggle away thing. Nightfury loves belly rubs and as much as possible.
So two out of three are no rub in our house.
Oh I wish we could see it!Darn this newish PC with no old pictures as I have a really cute photo of Allergy Cat on her back, rear legs stretched straight, front paws held in a circular position and head up staring at me with a look kind of above "pet my belly or die" and beneath "please?" and somewhere in the realm of "I'm riding an invisible motorcycle. Doesn't that make you want to pet my belly?"
your Morty looks like a twin to my Simon!Haha yep! Love Rick and Morty! Rick (the grey one) also has the biggest personality. A real sweetheart who warms up to new kittens in the snap of your fingers. He's been a great mentor to the foster kittens we've rehomed.
No, my kitten will attack my hand if I go for the belly unless he’s extremely sleepy.I am just curious if this is normal or different behavior for a cat? My cat is a 1 year old siberian and has absolutely loved belly rubs ever since about 6 months old. In fact, when she comes in bed in the morning and I am petting her back, she will do this little "flop" thing and fall to her side, and as she falls she will rabbit kick my hand to her stomach then hold it there with her leg and start purring. She will lay like that for however long I will pet her stomach, and will often fall asleep if I do it long enough. When I'm doing it, she will usually lay perpendicular to my chest with her paws pressed against me. If I move, or leave, and she feels her paws leave my chest, she usually gets up and leaves too.
Do any of your cats love belly rubs this much?
