With Izzie, it varies. Sometimes I can rub his tummy and other times, I get the "bicycle back feet" when he kicks me with his claws out. But I KNOW that Delilah ALWAYS hates to have her neck, chest and stomach touched. She will grab my hand between her paws, claws out and bite me, hard. With Izzie, I started clipping his claws when I rescued him as a kitten. I also handled his paws a lot so he's not as sensitive there as other cats can be. He does tolerate it if he's not "in a mood", but most often I am only able to clip one foot, if that much. I am extremely careful not to cut them too short because it's quite painful to them if you cut into the quick. You can ask your vet to show you the best way and how far to clip. And again, don't try to clip all four paws at one sitting. It also helps if you wait until they're asleep on your lap.

I don't like my belly, legs, backside, ears or around my eyes touched. My Mommy just gets my claws clipped at the vets.

Link doesn't like his tummy to be touched. He has a little white spot (he's grey) on his back left leg. He makes an unhappy prowl when that's touched. He doesn't mind his feet being touched sometimes, but he never likes his nails clipped.

Zelda gets into moods sometimes when she loves to be scrubbed all over. When not in one of those super happy moods, she's not fond of her tummy being touched.
