Even though Morgan doesn't like to be picked up or held, she will let you rub her tummy.
Don't you just want to bottle the Essence of Furry Cat Belly? I would carry it around with me and apply it liberally. It would be especially useful in times of stress. Or when I was tired. Or cranky. Or you know, whenever. Purring Cat Belly would be even better.
Isis has a funny little white spot on her tummy. We call it her V-For-Victory, and occassionally V-For-Vendetta. I try to avoid referring to it as her bikini line.
Isis rarely lets you rub her belly, although she rolls around and shows it off a good bit.
Emma has a crazy tortie belly.
She likes getting belly rubs, and will sometimes throw herself in front of you to get one. We don't talk about this behavior though, as it might be considered by some to be a bit undignified.
"One thing was certain, that the white kitten had had nothing to do with it--it was the black kitten's fault entirely." (L. Carroll, Through the Looking Glass)
I'm Yankee-Born and Southern-Raised, which makes me kind of Southern Gothic (in the old literary sense of the word). After 15 years in the Big Apple, I spent 4 years on a farm in Michigan raising chickens and llamas and learning to spin, knit, and needle-felt. Now I'm back home in NYC with my much-beloved spouse and one crazy tortiseshell cat. You can also find me on Ravelry.com as okitten.
