Countless times a day, I will look up and see this:
Nahum on his back, tummy in the air, just looking right at me.
He's asking that I come rub his tummy, which of course I must do! After a few seconds of tummy rubs he flips back over and wants to play - a bait and switch! I'm onto his game, but he knows I can't resist his soft tummy.
Did I train him to request tummy rubs? He knows that if he wants affection, all he has to do is to get in the position and it will happen. None of the other cats do this.
Or has Nahum trained me to drop whatever I am doing and rub his tummy on demand? It seems I can't resist his invitation no matter what I am in the middle of.
I am not sure who trained who, but it always works for him. He rolls over and looks = he gets tummy rubs!
