do cats like belly rubs?

hi there im new to this forum just been looking at some threads and was wondering does anybodys cat like there belly rubbed?

ive never known a cat to like it apart from my own he loves it, the rougher the better for him every other cat ive known will bite if you go near their belly (i think he thinks hes a dog)

Welcome to the forum!

It really depends on the cat. Some hate it,some tolerate it and others love it.My current foster roosl over to have his tummy rub, while some of my previous hated their tummies being touched.

My cat loves it, it annoys him if you do it lightly but he absolutely loves it when you rub it hard enough, he likes it when you scratch it

I've had cat/kittens what meowed back at my when I was talking to them.

Wilson (current foster) meows when is wants to know where I am or when he wants something.He also meows if you wants to to continue petting him.

yip he deffo doesnt stop crying till hes fed lol i think hes gonna be a big cat im looking forward to seeing that as i love fat cats, freddy is tall and slim he is so picky he doesnt eat chicken or anything hes pretty weird i gave him sardines when we got the kittens so he wasnt left out n he walked away from them haha, but marley cries from waking up till hes fed he'l eat the meat then have some milk then a bit of cream then some dry food, i never realised with having a picky cat that will only eat complete food how expensive they are lol

I would not give them any dairy products. They should only be eating wet and/or dry food (a raw diet is good to) if they still need milk then they are too young to have been taken away from mom , even then they show only recive milk made for them. Cows milk will make them sick.

What type of food are you feeding them? Kitten food has more calories ( I think it calories I'll have to check) than adult food.

thats how our cat got his name tummerz he loved it. Kitten food has a different fat ratio than adult food and i believe has different vitamins added.
