Only one of mine does this. Any ideas why only rear end and not her whole body? grinhmm

Bottom presenting is a sign they trust you completely as turning their back on something is normally a big no no as they could get jumped on from behind. Mine do this, normally when lying on my funbags so I almost get their starfish in my face!

Mine will settle on the back of the sofa at eye level next to me, then rotate every so often so I periodically have a cat's bum in my face. I learned long ago that my comfort is very low on their list of priorities when deciding where to sit!

I don't mind it but always a bit worried that there is a nugget of dry poo caught in her trousers. wink

I always assumed it was to teach you your station in life?

Your head is warm, sigh, so fastest way to warm up whole cat!

Has anyone seen those jewel things advertised that you put over their bums. So so wrong!

I once read it was so you could lick their bums like their mums used to do when they were kittens
A sign they trust you
Don't know if it's true. Give it a go and see if your cat is surprised or pleasedwink

What the actual fuck?

Yes. Exactly!! No I don't think I'll be licking their bums. I will do anything to make them happy but I draw the line at that!!
