So… what is kneading all about.
First of all let me start by saying that the action of kneading is a natural instinct, so telling off a cat that does this is plain silly so stop it!!!
The association with suckling and kneading (feeling content, nourished, cared for and safe) is carried through to adulthood by most cats. Many cats, at some stage in their lives, will start to knead a soft cushion or our laps and it can only mean one thing. If your cat is kneading you, you can guarantee it is purring, happy and enjoying the close bond it feels with you. This is a very good thing!
I would suggest you bite down on something hard and let your cat knead away until it gets bored and goes and bites the head off the nearest rodent! Only then should you let out a loud scream and go clean the blood away.
Before you all write to me calling me a rodent hater! Please don’t bother.
I love all living and breathing beings.
Why do cats knead us humans. Well, now you know!!!
