If you have a companion cat, then you have most likely felt them knead you. Well sure, your cat needs you, but we are talking about that pawing they do on your chest, stomach, legs - or whatever area suits them. It's totally adorable, but why do cats do this? And what does it mean when you are kneaded by your furry friend?
What Is Cat Kneading?
Kneading is the motion cats make by rhythmically alternating their paws, pushing in and out against a pliable, soft object (such as a lap). Not all cats knead in the same way; some never push out their claws at all, and some even use all four paws.
