She wants down. Mine does that too, and it means she is annoyed and definitely doesn't want to be on your lap or being held. You'll notice if you give them a chance they get down right away. At least with Zissou, if she's hiding her face, she's invariably being forced to do something she doesn't want to. Maybe other cats are different, especially if they purr and do it, but that's true for mine.
