Happy Sunday!We've just heard that September is Happy Cat Month so here is my very happy and contented selfie. When I expose my belly like this Mum knows it's an invitation for her to start giving me some tummy rubbing. And let me tell you I just love it!
I even let her kiss my tummy 😼
Of course, not every cat will enjoy exposing their tummy in this way. Especially at the beginning of a relationship. It's based on trust. For me, it was easy as I knew my mum was meant to be my mum from the very first day she walked into the cat shelter where I was waiting for my forever home. I trusted her completely from the very start. And on the first day when she adopted me and brought me home, I fell asleep contented on her lap (after I filled my hungry belly with yummy food!).
Mum was a bit nervous trying to give me the belly rub at first because she knows some cats don't like it. But soon enough, she realised I wanted the rubs and the kisses too!
Do you let your human rub your belly?
Before I go, do you remember Mr Catnip Mousie?
Well, I hadn't been playing with him for a while but Mum recently found him and started throwing him across the room one night when I was having my mad half hour before bedtime. I realised that I'd really missed the old man and so I grabbed him by my teeth and flung and bashed him around the room for a while and then I paw-batted him for a bit.
Look at him now.
