The belly is a tactical trap. I've heard speak that a cat rolls onto their back showing their belly to signify trust but this is pure lie. The real reason is, the cat has a clear and quick vector of sinking four clawed paws and a mouthful of teeth into the offending hand. The cat may pretend to enjoy it long enough to catch you off guard then WHAM! Love punctures.

Stay away from the belly unless you know the cat likes it. It's kind of like anal sex.

I guess it depends on how they're raised. My Sparky loves my full-body massage/rubs - on every single bit, even "against the fur" - but can't stand my spouse doing it. I've massaged him from a kittenhood, Toots did not.

/should I mention I once had an unfixed male that loved having his balls gently rubbed?
//no, I shouldn't
///non-kitty-hoomans wouldn't understand
////and no, I will not rub yours

These are not my cats! I am not turning into a crazy cat lady. These are both my son's cats.

showed this to a friend in the math department and she didn't understand why the two circles overlapped and how anything could be both loved and hated. Told her that she must not own cats or grew up with them. She wondered how I knew that.

Smart people can be clueless.

Meisaims: It's a pretty good guide. The comments are all like "NOOOO MY FLUFFY LETS YOU PET HER ANYWHERE THIS IS INACCURATE" and they kind of make me wonder about the people who think their cat is that statistically significant.

Is this chart suggesting that cats don't want belly rubs? My cat would like a word with them.
