Why your cat kneads before relaxing

You cat has a habit of kneading when she begins to settle down to relax. Why does she do this?

Your pet needs to be able to calm down when she feels like resting, and kneading may be one way she does this. She used to spend her time kneading against her mother to stimulate milk production when she was just a kitten, and this may be a fond memory that she is calling upon to help soothe her. This may also have simply formed a habit, and now your pet kneads simply because she always has before settling in for a nap. Some may argue that your pet kneads in order to ready the surface she is planning to relax on, shaping it and making sure she will be comfortable there. For more information, please contact your local vet Pleasanton, CA.
