Cats have a lot of cute, yet peculiar behaviors. One example is their seemingly weird need to climb the highest places. You can often notice them running around, trying to reach the highest vantage point and then staring down on the whole environment.
But out of all those weird behaviors, it’s the one where they roll on the floor, exposing their bellies, as if inviting us wouldn’t leave us bites and scratches after. Let’s find out what our cats mean by this action, so we could understand them better!
A Relaxed Moment and Well-Being
Oftentimes, cats are usually pretty guarded and are easy to startle. Their predatory instincts makes them constantly on the lookout for prey and possible threats. You may have noticed that some cats sleep high on trees, lying down with their bellies, or ones that live in burrows, cave-like structures, or in any place they can safely squeeze themselves in.
There are only specific moments and situations that would make a feline adopt this kind of position. It happens the most during moments of relaxation and well-being. Felines only show their bellies in a safe environment, while being surrounded by the ones they share affection and trust with.
Showing Friendliness and Wanting to Interact with You
Ever noticed how your cat greets you whenever you get home? They often meow, rub themselves against your leg, or follow you around. But sometimes, they like to spice things up, and you get to see them roll on the floor and bare their bellies in front of you.
Now, when a cat does this, it is often a friendly invitation of wanting to spend time with you, or an adorable way of asking you for something. There’s a high chance that they’d want to socialize with you, but never is it an invitation for belly rubs. Their bellies are very sensitive parts of their bodies, and most cats would prefer if you stayed away from this region.
Caused by Health Issues
Curling up like a ball, stretching, and showing their bellies are just some of a cat’s natural response when they feel pleasure. They even get into this posture while sleeping, which help them sleep better and be more comfortable. However, that isn’t always the case, and sometimes, certain health issues can cause this kind of behavior.
If it reaches to the point wherein your cat has been continually doing it to scratch themselves, it’s important to be on alert. This could be an indicator that they’re experiencing allergies, external parasites, or disease. Don’t hesitate to take them to the vet if this type of behavior becomes compulsive for your cat.
Although showing their bellies is not an invitation for a belly rub, it is often a clear sign from them asking to be pampered. With their bellies being such a sensitive region, they might end up feeling vulnerable when you touch it, giving them a negative feelings. Play with them and pet them in areas they’re comfortable with, and you’ll be sure to give your cat a stress-free pampering time.
There are a lot of times wherein cats get a hold of power in the household, but for this specific feline, it was the entire town of Talkeetna, Alaska. This small town is well-known for its singularity as well as a small population that resides in it. They have weird activities as well that involves mooses and women. There is Moose Dropping festival wherein a helicopter flies and flings a moose dung – and guests will have to guess where it lands. Another thing would be the Wilderness Woman wherein they hold a competition for women’s strength in games of tossing firewood and hunting.
In this very town, Stubbs the cat was first found as a stray in a box full of his kitty siblings. It was in a parking lot of Nagley’s General Store by the manager, Lauri Stec, and has adopted the small and frail ginger cat with no tail. He then was called Stubbs by his new owner, because he lacked a tail, and has lived a happy life with his new family.
It was 1997 and it was during the time wherein most of the people opposed having human candidates and decided to write for Stubbs. His position was given to him and became the honorary mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska – with the Nagley’s Store as his office during his whole reign. Around 2014, his name appeared in the media to vote for him instead of human candidates for the incoming senate election. Sadly, he didn’t win.
He would host meetings with his family and citizens and would demand an occasional belly rubs. Sometimes, he would request for a nice cold water with spiked catnip for hot afternoons while looking at his town. He also attracted a lot of tourists in the town as well, just to meet the feline mayor of the town. According to most citizens, his mayoral reign was a good and peaceful one – no increase in tax and sales tax, he didn’t hinder any businesses from growing or opening, and he was absolutely honest – the ideal politician in this day and age.
But his ruling wasn’t as peaceful as one would think – he had a fight with a vicious collarless dog. It left him severely injured with a punctured lung, broken bones, and deep cuts. It has put a halt in his free strolling around the town. Aside from that dangerous encounter, he also had an accident with the store’s fryer – he fell in while the oil was cooled.
Then he also encountered teens who shot BB guns at him, but he survived everything that came his way. Stubbs died peacefully in his sleep last July 21, 2017 – aged 20. He has served as the mayor since July 18, 1997 until his death. While his passing was peaceful, hundreds of posts and even news about Stubbs came in – letting other people know how much of a good kitty and mayor he was. He may have been a very old cat, but even to his last breaths, he was happy and active.
While your cat may not be a mayor of any town, it’s definitely a mayor of your heart – they deserve all the love and attention you showered to them. All the kitty products and accessories you bought is worth it, since they return it with unconditional love and loyalty!
