Stop Stroking Your Cat's Belly -- It Hates It

By Sam Gibbs on at

Cats are truly mysterious things. Sometimes you have to wonder what the hell is going on in their pretty little heads. Did you know, for example, that cats don't like you stroking their tummies even though it looks like they're totally asking for it? Yeah, they hate that, apparently. Stop it. Stop it now.

Using behavioural science, Cats Protection has put together this little video that shows you precisely what cats are thinking when they're prancing around in front of you. What the charity missed out, though, is that actually your cat doesn't love you. It only needs you for food, and if it was big enough, it'd totally eat you, just like a tiger. Remember that when you're petting the cute little thing. [Cats Protection via Daily Mail]
