No way. Cats HATE touchin their belly. I think it has something to do with their defence mechanism though. At least, this is the conclusion I come to.
When Cats (tigers, lions) attack, they tend to bite down and rake with their back paws. This disembowls their victims. I personaly think that's why cats dont like having their tummies touched. If you grab a cat under the head (playfully now - or otherwise) they will rake the hell out of you with their back feet. Cats cant stand being in any compramising possition no matter how much they trust.. errr wait. Cats has a serious trust issue. lol
so yeah, I can see that but it's still funny that they're "ticklish" under the belly. Scratch right where their tail meets their back. Thats a taboo place for kitties also.
