I have a 4 year old spayed female, and I've noticed lately that she likes to "knead" clothes, sheets, etc... with her hind legs. She stands in one spot and kind of walks in place with her hind legs only. What does this mean?
Our littlest rescue, Miss Fluffy, does that when she seems to be really happy. she kneads with all 4 paws and makes a funny little noise. I guess she is not so little any more, she was rescued on Christmas Eve 2 years ago.
All five of ours do this. The eldest Tristan likes to take the cat dancer and walk around the house kneading it with his hind legs in place every now and then, then walking some more dragging it behind him and then stopping to knead. He merows the whole time as well, that 'mouth full' sort of merow. The other two males have their favourite sweater that they also drag through the house and up onto the bed, kneading away at it with their hind legs and every so often also making a merowing noise. The two females just knead at blankets or clothing that has been left on the floor or the bed -not as loudly nor do they drag it around. All of them are super affectionate after a go kneading whatever it is they have chosen.
