Belly Time

Wolowitz, one of our new kittens, is a strange dude in just so many ways. He coos like a pigeon, he needs to find a way to get on top of the highest thing in every room, he loves an empty box more than any living thing should love any inanimate thing and he likes to hide in our bathroom sink. It's a white sink and he is mostly black/dark brown. He's pretty easy to spot.

But the oddest thing that he does is his belly time.

When he is in the mood for some lovin', he will jump up on the bed or the couch or wherever and start purring and preening for some petting. Then he will lay down, usually just out of reach so that he has to start the process all over again. Then he rolls onto his back and spreads his rear legs wide while he allows us to scratch his belly. Right above his hey nonny nonny. He will stay in this position for hours as he usually falls asleep during the process. And Wolowitz sleeps like the dead. It's incredible.

I've never had a cat before that enjoys his/her belly rubbed like this. They usually let you do it for a moment or so and then they push your hand away with their back paws. But this guy? He fucking loves it.

It's his special belly time.

PS - I understand that this post is in serious need of a kitty pic of Wolowitz in his belly time pose, but we have yet to capture it on film. Deal with it, bitches!

Heff said...

I like Belly Time my damn self.

i am the diva said...

Kozmo used to be like that before he became an asshole...

Jimmy Bastard said...

There's nothing wrang with a bit of the auld rubbing of the belly.

Elise said...

I'd love to be a cat... LAzying around, hiding in the sink, having my belly rubbed. He's a smart cat, taking advantage of the loving! xx

B.E. Earl said...

Candy - I aim to please.

Slyde - really? It is odd kitty behavior.

Heff - you and me both, brother.

Diva - you have an asshole cat? I thought that was impossible.

Jimmy - I just like to be the rubbee on occasion.

Elise - the verdict on his intelligence is up for debate. Gia thinks he acts like a crackhead.

Callie said...

Wolowitz? As in the horn dog from The Big Bang Theory?

*snicker/giggle*

Given his belly rub tendencies, the name sounds very appropriate.

And, Yes Earl - there are asshole cats. I have one.

B.E. Earl said...

Callie - yes, that is where he got his name. That show is one of our guilty pleasures.

Callie said...

LOVE that show!

My opinion of you just went up.

Michelle said...

Green man here is my analysis:

Wolowitz sees this behavior in his humans and decides he wants in on the action. He is just imitating you green man!!!

:O)

B.E. Earl said...

Callie - as did mine of you. ;)

Michelle - We do engage in a bit of, um, belly rubbing every now and again. ;)

LegalMist said...

"Right above his hey nonny nonny." ... heehee ... snicker ....

My cat would likely remove my arms if I tried that, so yes, it is unusual behavior for a cat. :)

Bruce said...

WTF?? ...'above his hey nonny nonny".........CATS HAVE THOSE?

B.E. Earl said...

Mist - most cats would.

Bruce - his, ahem, private parts. Yeah, cats have those. Nipples too, but I'm not sure you can milk a cat. Ask Ben Stiller.

madge said...

oooh, can't wait for a photo! i rub bellies around here and i am asking for it!

teeni said...

Well, I guess it is like they say, "They each have their own purrrrrsonalities!" My male only allows a little belly petting and thebn uses the back feet just like you described. It's not fair that he can be so cute like that and not let me pet him longer. LOL. Anyway, it sounds like you are really enjoying your pets. I'm glad they got a good home. :)

B.E. Earl said...

Madge - your pets, the cats and the the doggies, are just aching for belly rubs from the looks of the pictures.

Teeni - Wolowitz would let you do it for hours, but thankfully he falls asleep while you are doing it after about 10 minutes.

Id like me some belly time.

Though mine is probably not as furry as your cats.

...

Wow...I could so have been dirty there but you see how I controlled myself? Did ya? Did ya?

Skillz!
