wierd cat behavior

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
When my cat is getting ready to lay down he "kneeds" the sofa or person with his paws. He sometimes does this for minutes at a time. He is purring when he does this. He also does this sometimes while he is laying down. He always does this when he lays on or next to somebody. It is almost as if he is in a zone when he does this. It is very awkward. He is a three year old Oci cat. I want to know what this behavior means. Thank you

When newborn kittens are hungry they knead (edited for spelling lol) mommies tummy to help the flow of milk.
It's normal. Our 19 year old cat still does it. It's comforting to them.

It means that he is a very content and happy kitty. Very normal behavior for cats.

Moving this to the Behavior forum.

First off let me say The Sammycat is famous for that. He makes the best bread in the house with his kneading Really it just means that they are contented and happy

Rosie is two years old and does it on the blanket that she's had as a kitten. I call it her comfort blanket

Dori does it to me every night when we go to bed, if I am lucky she will do it to my back and shoulders just like a massage

Loki does this every chance he gets - it means he is a very happy camper.
