Do Your Kitties Ever ...

... suddenly have the urge to touch you?

I don't mean like how they wind their way around your legs or rub up against you, but do they suddenly reach out and pet you? Spike does that -- we'll be cuddling together on the couch, and he'll reach out with a paw and just sort of lightly pat my arm or leg, as if to reassure himself that I'm still there and still real. Or he'll reach up and tap my face gently. Oz does this, too, but not nearly as often, and the two of them are the only cats that I've witnessed doing this. It's very, very sweet.

They show their affection in other ways, of course, but somehow when they "pet" us it just seems more endearing. (I'm fairly certain that our cats are convinced that we're the pets.)

My boys always do, and I love it. If Harley is sitting next to me anywhere- he always has to have one paw on my arm or leg, he always has to touch me. And Bayley is the exact same way I love it!

Reilly touches me all the time. When he sits on my lap he will reach up and put his paw on my face...awww!

My Mom has a large mole on her chin. As she held cats as they slept, they would rouse up and reach up to touch her mole. Then they'd go back to sleep. Sis and I did it, too. I guess it reaffirmed that Mommy was still holding us.

Does smacking count?! Molly is a toucher & Lucky is a hugger.

YES... Especially my kitten! Sometimes when she is rubbing on my legs I go to pick her up and she lifts both of her paws into the air and holds my face! She also stretches out next to me in bed and likes to touch her paws to my lips and of course my hair and face ( i just dont like ti when she grabs my lips with claws and all)! She is so damn loving that way!

Tailer does it all the time. Harvey and Forest don't, though.

Abby does that all the time.

Chynna only taps me on the leg to let me know that she wants attention.

Swanie does it. Not pet me, but he'll put his paw on me.

Whenever I hold Quill he likes to paw my face ever so gently. When I'm sitting he loves to lay down and just fiddle with my feet, sometimes just holding them and giving them a bath And in bed sometimes he will just grab my hand and lick for ten minutes and its just so sweet.

Occasionally Sho will lightly paw me when he's sitting next to me or when I'm in bed. He prefers to bother DH at the computer, he'll reach up and tap DH on the arm or shoulder. But that's just how Sho begs for an extra meal.

Tomas is the snuggly one. If I lift him up towards my face with my hands under his front legs, he'll paw at my face. He rubs his paws all over my face if I lean over him while he's laying in my lap or next to me on the bed too.

Max, the not so nice, outdoor kitty will spontaneously walk up and bite my legs, hard, for no reason.

My Clyde usually sleeps wrapped around my leg, and sometimes as he's falling asleep, he just strokes my thigh a few times with the soft little pads of his paws. I love him so!

yea, they do sometimes. Eazy more often then then heyu does.

I love that - the little paw reaching out to rest on your mouth or stroke your cheek.

Radar is not the cuddliest cat but he comes to me for cuddles usually once a day and sometimes he will look up at my face, blink his eyes slowly, and reach out and rest his paw on my face.

Sonic will curl up next to me in bed and put all four paws on my mouth

Well, of course we are their pets! Alley lays right on my chest at night and reaches out like you say and touches my face quite often. BTW, this is very uncomfortable for me, but I lie there like that anyway so that she will think I am a good pet...

Summer will reach out and dab my face when she wants my attention. She is infamous for laying one paw out and tapping or kneading us as she rests on our lap. She will also wrap her paw around our hand so we keep petting her.

Chevy will use our legs as a place to "stretch" when he wants our attention.

Sassy does that all the time, he likes to sit on the back of my recliner when I am watching TV and his paw is always resting on my head. Linus is getting more cuddly everyday as well. Now when he sits or lays beside me he has to be pressed right up against me. Which is okay except during this heat wave we are having now. What is also cute is Linus just loves Sassy and is always rubbing up against him. Sassy is usually pretty good natured about it unless treats are involved. We have been training Linus about the difference between eating his own treats and leaving Sassy' alone. It has taken a couple of days but he understands now.

If I have visitors and anyone is sitting on the sofa with me, Kitty HAS to sit in between and puts one paw on my knee. He`s strange!

Maisie was sooo cute last night. I went to give her her supper and spend some time with her. She didn`t feel like playing so I laid down on her sofa and she jumped up and layed on my chest. After a while she put her face right in mine and put her cold wet nose on my top lip and then on my nose then got off and curled up in her favourite chair for bedtime

all 3 of mine do that. raven has an extra cute way of touching me while he's sleeping. he likes to lay behind me on the back of the couch, then stretch his one leg out and touch my shoulder. sometimes he puts a fair amount of pressure. it's very cute. my other 2 will reach out and touch. stimpy really likes to spoon if i'm laying on the couch. he really gets into it, and pushes himself against me as close as possible.
