Brisbane the cat, sleeping on his back
Having had three cats for so long, and a couple outside kitties, and being around them most of my life, I realize they all sleep so differently.  This is Brisbane and he sleeps like this most of the time.  Just like a big dog, laying flat on his back, exposing himself to the world (not the most graceful of poses, ha).

We've read that it's actually a great sign of trust, because cats instinctively protect their stomachs "from predators".  Of course the only predator he will encounter here is us, giving belly kisses!

Hope you are having a good day, Friday is here!

More this afternoon/evening!

Our cat exposes his belly until you go to tickle it and then she pushes you away. Such a tease!

If you ever take in another cat, I'd be absolutely thrilled if you called it Townsville!

Sending you a kiss, Brisbane! You are such a cutie-pie!
My cat like to snuggle between me and the arm of the recliner - he then rolls onto his back for lots of belly rubs.

Ha, that's a tease for sure! I think they know when we want to love on to them and then they rebuff us, LOL!

Townsville huh? Towny could be a fun nickname huh? :-)

Brisbane thanks you! The other of our cats will occasionally roll onto his back but as soon as you go in for the belly rub, he starts kicking with the back legs, ha.
