Depending on your catís history; where you got her, how long you have had her, when she rolls over on her back that is not always an invitation to tummy rubs. Prior to doing battle, many cats will roll on their back because this is where their weapons are- claws and teeth.
When something launches itself on to the catís stomach, whether it is another cat or your hand, the catís instinct is to rabbit -kick and draw out her claws and bite.
If you continue to rub, and start going at it harder, this is an invitation to war and you will be attacked. The best way to avoid this situation is not to do belly rubs if your cat shows aggravation or aggression when you do so.
