Why do cats roll over on their backs and show their stomachs?
City Kitty answers: Only special people ever get to see my stomach - much less rub or scratch it. To tell the truth, whenever I roll over and ask someone for a belly scratch, this is the ultimate compliment that I can pay to a human being. This means ...
- I really love you.
- I'm very comfortable around you.
- I trust you completely.
- I feel totally secure around you.
- I'm trying to get you to pet me or pay attention to me.
- I want to play now.
- My back itches and I'm trying to scratch it.
My stomach area is the must vulnerable body part of my body. If I ever fall asleep on my back with you in the same room, my trust in you must be way out of sight.
