Friends, I think we might have Hoodie-Hooed a little too hard on February 20. We did not intend to skip Spring and head straight into Summer, but that's what the weather is like here!
One good side-effect of Early Summer is all of the sunpatches lying around in the library. There is a particularly good one in the YA room every morning.
Once I'm warmed up by the sunshines, I really get a hankerin' for a good bellyrub.
Oooooh, here comes a potential bellyrubber right now!
Present the belly in the most irresistible fashion possible:
Notice how I maximize the rubbable area by (a) pulling my front feets up way high and (b) stretching my hind legs waaaaaaay out behind me. This makes my pettable surface area approximately 90% belly and chestal region.
Now, start rolling, dragging, stretching, purring, starfish pawing, and generally looking irresistible. How do you do this?
I know it looks like a whole lot of cuteness is being rewarded with not nearly enough belly-rubbing, but rest assured, I got LOTS of petting for that display of adorability.
Do any of you have any special belly-rub solicitation techniques?
