Cats' tummies

Our tummies are truly wonderful things. Obviously on the inside because that's where all our yummy food goes but on the outside too; soft, fluffy and warm and full of rumble purr.

I was lying there last night having my evening tummy rub dribbling just a little bit at the pure bliss of it all and mum laughed at me and said I did not look dignified.

I tried to tell her that I didn't care but it came out more like, "Mmmmmmmmm!"

"Lots of cats hate having their tummies touched," she commented.

I wondered why.

Mum said it's actually very natural for an animal not to be touched in such a vulnerable place.

"So how come I love it so much?" I asked.

Mum explained that she loves to rub a kitty tummy so when I was tiny she rubbed my tummy a lot so I would get used to it and think about snuggly things when she did it. Only she hadn't realised that I would expect tummy rubs every evening and every morning.

But I do!!

Do not touch my tummy! That goes for pestky brofurs and humans alike. I attack with all four paws if you dare. And two of those paws still have sharp claws.

Why on earth would you let her do that. I wish my mommy would try. I might have to remind her I run this house.

I used to hate having my tummy touched, but now that I'm an old fart, I love it! I roll over and make air biscuits while mom rubs my tummy.
