I keep seeing people complain about how their cats will bite them after just a little belly rubbing, when cats aren't really asking for it at all. They just like you OuO

    Different for every cat but yes! My aunt's cat actually enjoys being rubbed on the belly.

    Haha so cute! My Nora seems to enjoy belly rubs, but she does totally prefer chin and chest rubbins more. Maybe she's just very polite about it.

    I have found if I rub their heads at the same time they let me pet their bellies. At least this seems to be so with most cats.

    Also when I meet a new cat I lay on the ground with them with my belly up.

      My cat will do similarly. She hates being held with her belly up, but she's okay so long and I'm petting her head. Once I stop, though, she's had enough of that shit, lol

        I'm guessing it might be sending them mixed messages.

    my cat absolutely loves belly rubs! we also tumble around and play on the floor and I tickle him and bury my face in him.

    he's pretty much a dog.
