So here's why cats lie on their backs when they see you
what loves to snuggle, does the
weirdest things, and has just a touch of attitude?
My ex? ... Nahh. We're talkin' about cats here!
Well cats have been domesticated pets since
the time of Cleopatra. There's still alot about them
that remains a mystery.
Like when they just roll over as you approach them. What's up with that?
Keep watching to find out all about that and more!
Before we let the cat out of the bag,
Hit that subscribe button and ring that little bell to join us on the bright side
when you come home after a long day
at work, seeing your adorable feline friend
as soon as you walk through the door is the best feeling ever.
Unless they're hiding, and its not uncommon for them to
greet you, belly first!
when cats lie on their back, and expose their bellies
It's their way of saying "HEYY!"
this is especially common in kittens
they are excited to see you and hoping to get some attention with treats,
pets, and of course a gentle belly rub
But, a friendly "hello, human" isn't the only message
a cat sends when it shows you its' cute furry little belly
Exposing its' stomach puts a cat in the most vulnerable position. That means
if they lie on their back while next to you,
they are showing their utmost trust in you.
they don't need to worry about their safety when you're around
and they are incredibly comftorable with you. Wow,
what an honor! Well most of the time
lying on their backs is a sign of trust
it doesn't always mean they want a belly rub.
be careful not to invade your cat's space
unless you know they love belly rubs and like to be touched
look for other clues, like their ears and tail
if the tail is moving back and forth, and their ears are set back
this means they would rather be left alone!
Feisty kitty! But, we are
talking about cats, here. So there are plenty of other things they do
that just have you scratching your head in confusion!?
Here are some more strange cat behaviors explained.
Starting with, #1...
Rubbing its' head on you.
When a cat weaves through your legs, and rubs its' head on you,
isn't it just the cutest thing ever?
But why do they do it? This behavior
is actually called bunting, and it involves
a release of pheromones from the cat's head
Basically, it's as if they're leaving their scent on you,
to make sure other cats know that you
belong to them!
Awww, they're so proud to call you theirs.
Or, they're just making sure you understand crystal clear
who owns whom in this household.
have you ever been snuggling with your kitty when they start
pressing their little paws into you over and over again
when cats do this sort of bread kneading motion
it's actually left over from their kitten days, when they used to nurse
you see, nursing kittens instinctively know
to press their paws into their mommy's belly
to help get the milk flowing, which means dinner time!
But even after they grow up and stop nursing,
this behavior sticks around, and it means that your cat is
happy and comfortable. They also do it
as a way to relieve stress, since this is a very calming
ritual they innately know how to do.
If your cat does this often
it means they feel comfortable
and protected by you, as if you were
