The cute belly of our favourite feline is so tempting to stroke. It is soft, warm, and generally inviting, but unlike many dogs, cats can be temperamental when it comes to this particular region of their body.
So many vital organs lay directly beneath a cat’s tummy, and it is a vulnerable place; therefore, pusses will often guard their stomachs with a paw-smack if you try to invade! As groomers, we always approach with caution, and ensure we take the time to build up a trusting relationship with your furry friend, for both our safety and the comfort of your beloved pet.
However, there are some very relaxed felines who love having their belly rubbed, and we are lucky enough to have some clients who will give us free reign, which makes pampering so much easier! Does your cat enjoy tummy tickles? ❤
