This is Knuckles' favorite position. We call it the "stretch." When HH comes in the door, Knuckles runs to the hallway and flops, then s...t...r...e...t...c...h...e...s. For this picture, he was on his side. Most often, he's on his back with optimum tummy exposure for scratching.
I think the boy is feeling super comfortable and trusting in his new home... When I was his age, I was always curled into a ball... Never exposed my tummy to anybody. Now, some kitties do this maneuver to lure in their prey. Then when a bean goes to rub their tummy, they curl up and grab their hand. You know what I mean. Not so with Knuckles. What you see is what you get. It's purely a "Scratch my tummy," move... HEE HEE...
Well, just thought it was a cute picture. Besides that, I just wanted to tell you to have a nice holiday tomorrow. Time to go help E. Bunny paint the eggs.
Bye for now.
