When belly rubs are safe
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Sometimes we kittehs just don’t like to have out bellies touched and other times, we just totally luvluvluv it! Katie used to let Mom L and Dad P give her lots and lots of belly rubs when she was first with us. You remember we rescued her from a terrible hoarding situation when she was only about five months old. By the time she was about nine months old she was really getting the hang of making her tummy available for belly rubs.
Sadly, Katie stopped letting Mom L give her those belly rubs a couple of years ago. No reason, she just stopped once she left the confines of Mom L’s office where she lived for a couple of months to get further socialized after we adopted her. Sweet girl, no one wanted her ‘cuz she was so shy. She was adopted twice and returned both times. That’s when Mom L and Dad P said “she isn’t going anywhere else again. She is ours.”
So you can imagine how excited Mom L was yesterday when Katie let her give her lots of belly rubs for like five minutes!!
Katie let her rub her up and down her whole underside and she even posed for some photos and never rolled over and ran away like she has been doing.
Can you tell that Katie hasn’t grown much bigger than she was in 2018? She is still a little kitty compared to me at ten pounds and TKS at twelve pounds. KK is a petite seven pounds.
Hope you enjoyed seeing Katie let Mom L give her belly rubs.
