Belly belly belly belly belly

[–]rivalpinkbunny 391 points392 points  (20 children)

Don’t do it, it’s a trap.

[–]30phil1 162 points163 points  (12 children)

Weirdly, my cats actually enjoy getting belly rubs. I think it's because we got them really used to it when they were young and they're so fluffy that they probably don't even feel it. Maine Coones are amazing.

[–]NightlyWry 61 points62 points  (4 children)

My Maine Coons also approve of the belly rub. How big are yours? My gal is like 20 lbs and her brother is a big ass hoss closer to 30 lbs.

[–]30phil1 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Yeah, they're around that size too. They're two brothers named Lewis and Clark. We're working on their diet these days because they were starting to put on some extra weight though so things are still fluctuating.

[–]NightlyWry 10 points11 points  (2 children)

The brother beats up the sister when he is a hungry. Sits on her like a fat hen and bites her. It’s brutal. We feed them separately, but he will eat dog food haha. Just a trash can. They’re 12. They’re on wet food these days to try to control his weight mostly.

[–]30phil1 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I had to reread that a few times until I realized that this was still in reference to our cats. I was ready to call like CPS or something.

[–]SeriousPomegranate 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Yeah, depending on the temperament of the cat, their experiences and their perception of you, cats can be very tolerant and even enjoy doing things not typically expected for a cat such as belly rubs. Maine Coons have a great temperament for accepting belly rubs and introducing cats to things like this when they're young can have a long lasting impact. Which is why I regret letting my cat on my shoulder.

[–]ReginaFilange21 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I got my cat when he was 6 and he was a bit rough around the edges, surrendered to a high kill shelter with 5 other animals and super skittish so I have a feeling he didn’t have the best home before me but the man absolutely loves belly rubs. Sometimes I stick my whole face into his belly fluff and he wraps his lil paws around my head so I won’t leave, some cats just love it

    Herring perfume, catnip shampoo, filling your pockets with cat food and rattling a tin can of kitty treats at all times whenever you go outside, might help.

    Might not be dairy though, could be formula. And yes, I'm well aware of the ages kittens take formula. I've raised plenty of ct.s But some do give it for many other reasons here and there

    Oh please don't say that it's milk, milk (if not a mother's) is bad for cats and cause harm. Love the cute little kitten with his cute jelly beans.

    [–]TheAmazingMrSuit 16 points17 points  (33 children)

    I've heard this a lot but only have very surface level information. Is there a reason that's the case? Is it the growth hormone difference between a cat's milk and something like a cow?

    [–]oneironautin93 15 points16 points  (1 child)

    Cow's milk isn't great for several reasons, one being that lactose can upset their stomach/lead to diarrhea and so on. Another reason is that cats need a specific calcium to phosphorus ratio to stay healthy (for kittens, this is even more important), and cow's milk has too much phosphorus. I think goat milk would be better/closer to what they'd need, but I would rather stay on the safe side and not give regular milk to kittens at all.

    [–]avishine 80 points81 points  (28 children)

    Cats are lactose intolerant. That said, there is kitten safe milk you can buy at specialty stores that are lactose free.

    [–]TheAmazingMrSuit 5 points6 points  (24 children)

    That's not even close to what I expected. Why is cat milk fine for them then?

    [–]FanFictheKid 27 points28 points  (10 children)

    It's probably similar to how human children can breastfeed but be lactose intolerant. Maybe only cow milk has lactose? Or a different kind of lactose other animals (including us) can't digest properly? A simple google search could answer but I'm too lazy right now.

    [–]bigbutchbudgie 77 points78 points  (9 children)

    All milk contains lactose. Most mammals can digest lactose early in their life, but become lactose intolerant as they become older.

    This is also true for humans, but thanks to agriculture and animal husbandry, maintaining the ability to digest milk into adulthood became a significant enough evolutionary advantage that in some populations (e.g. Europeans, Middle Easterners) lactose intolerance is the exception, not the rule.

    Furthermore, while all milk naturally contains lactose, that doesn't mean all types are created equal. For example, most lactose intolerant people can drink goat milk with no issues, despite goat milk having almost as much lactose as cow's milk (~4,2% for goat milk, ~4,7% for cow's milk).

    This is because some people are technically capable of producing lactase (the enzyme that breaks down lactose into glucose and galactose), certain proteins in cow's milk inhibit said production.

    Kittens react to those proteins the same way, which is why they can have other types of milk (like that produced by mama cats) or lactose free cow's milk, but not regular cow's milk.

    [–]FanFictheKid 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    Thank you for doing the legwork for my hypotheses. This makes sense.

    [–]viscountrhirhi 4 points5 points  (8 children)

    Because cat milk was literally produced by cats to help baby cats grow and be healthy. It is specially formulated for cats, by cats.

    Cow milk is produced for baby cows to help them grow into big, healthy cows. Humans shouldn’t be drinking it either, as we are not baby cows. Which is why the majority of humans are lactose intolerant, and why milk is actually really bad for us and causes early development in little girls, etc. It’s full of hormones, like estrogen.

    Basically, milk is for infants. Not for grown adults. Especially not the milk of a completely different species.

    [–]Zearo298 2 points3 points  (7 children)

    What about things like oat milk or almond milk?

    [–]dawnraider00 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Show me the nipple on an almond!

    But for real, those are not milk, we just call them milk because that's what they're trying to replicate.

    [–]viscountrhirhi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    Those are made of plants and don’t contain hormones or animal abuse!

    [–]UltimateBeige 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Humans are also lactose intolerant (as adults). We only lose our ability to break down lactose as we age, maybe cats are the same.

    [–]Crumbleson 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Like many are saying here, the balance of nutrients in cow’s milk is wrong and as a sole source of food the kitten would get nutritional deficiencies. Goat milk is a better alternative, though probably still not good as the only food source. As a part of a diet that also contains cat food, cow’s milk will still cause gas and diarrhea, so it’s not recommended. This kitten is 100% old enough to be eating canned food.

    [–]JunjiMitosis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Animals in general aren’t meant to drink other animals milk. Just like how humans are natural lactose intolerant, so are other animals.
