We know you love giving your pets belly rubs as much as they enjoy receiving them, but it turns out there’s more to it than that.
Science says petting our beloved animals is one of the best forms of stress relief. This is the easiest and most natural way to release those feel-good hormones.
So, when animals roll over, it’s a sign of not only submissiveness, but trust (they’re also just adorable to watch).
For cats, rolling over on their belly is considered a defensive gesture before attacking.
Nonetheless, they too appreciate a good belly rub – even if it is for a moment. Fetch that furry mate and start rubbing!
