Reluctant Ragdoll

Hi all,

I was just wondering if anyone else owned a raggie!? I know that brushing them is important, and so I make a point of doing it almost every day... but one of mine absolutely hates her stomach being brushed and refuses to let me go anywhere near there with a brush... any advice??

Thanks

If you plant her on her hindquarters and hold up her front legs with her back toward you, can you reach around with the other hand and brush her belly? Our cat doesn't struggle a lot, but if I'm trying to clip his front nails, which he doesn't care for, that seems to work...
