 Why do cats sometimes stick their butt in your face when you pet them?

 They even fart sometimes when they do it!  Or at least mine does.

    Cats, like dogs, greet each other by smelling their rear ends. So they often offer you their bottom in greeting. Its gross, but it means they trust you.

    I'm no cat expert, BUT many believe that this is actually a GOOD thing, albeit gross. They consider you not only one of them, but also like a parent figure and expect you to uh, yeah...clean them up? I guess that's the way I can put it? Yeah, I'll go with that. Social grooming is common with bonded cats, so this is what they expect you to do. I know, I know...effing gross, but kind of sweet, LOL.

      Yeah, that's the ticket.
