Sign of trust? I sure hope so!

I've read that when a cat turns his/her back to you that it could be a sign that they totally trust you. Well I certainly hope that's the case with Angel! Sometimes when I lie down next to her, she will immediately get up and turn her back to me. Sometimes she'll plop her back fat right down on my face even. Ha ha! Anyway, I used to always figure she didn't like me or was annoyed, so it was so nice to read this one day. Personally I prefer to believe that she does this because she just loves and trusts me so much.

Hope I don't ever read anything to the contrary!

Sometimes mine will come up and sit on my lap and look ant me with those sleepy eyes and purring their little hearts out. After a few minutes they turn around facing away from me. I have also read the same thing. I just enjoy knowing they trust me so much.

I think they do it to protect us from anything that might come our way

i like to think they also trust us enough to "get their back" as well. fighting back-to-back is the ultimate!

When I am in bed, Blanco will lay down on my chest with his butt right up to my face.
Since he is a nervous boy, I figure he wants to keep an eye on what is coming his way! Luckily he doesn't stay that way too long because he has a stinky butt.

I agree getting "the back" is a sign of love and trust and relaxation....a fearful cat will always face it's source of mistrust to see what happens next.

My Alkee gives me the bum presentation. I've noticed that cat's do this to other cats that they like and trust. She does it repeatedly in front of me while I'm on the computer. The only thing that makes her go an sit is if I gently blow on her backside.
