The cat jumps to your knees, rumbles, blinks with pleasure and starts treading, turning over with its paws and sometimes even releasing claws.
Why does this happen, what mechanism underlies this treading?
It is no secret that domestic cats, unlike wild or feral, remain a little kittens.
This is due to the "paradise" life that we create for them, when you can only play and be lazy and do not need to look for food.
In this scenario, the owner of the cat plays the role of the cat-mother: feed, care, play.
By the way, when we stroke a cat, she perceives it as licking!
So why are they still treading ???? Everything is very simple: at some particularly joyful moments the cat finally falls into childhood and remembers the time when she was a tiny kitten and sucked her cat's mother's milk. And to make the milk go better, the kittens rhythmically put pressure on my mother's belly. The same thing your cat is trying to do with your knees (and probably wondering why there is no milk?)🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️ Often the owners do not like when the cat is treading on them, and put her on the floor. No need to do this, look at the situation from her side: she came to you with all her heart, and you sharply rejected it. Try to put something on its knees that does not let go of the claws and enjoy it, because the cat treading is the highest manifestation of cat love.🐈🐈🐈❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
