Why your cat wants to knead things

Having a cat in your life means that you have a front row seat to all the things that make feline’s so interesting and you want to make sure you understand as many aspects of this as you can. This makes you wonder – why does she want to knead things so often?

Kneading is a behavior that is acquired as a kitten in order to keep milk flowing from their mother. Kneading against her mother may stimulate this so she can get a good meal. She may continue it out of habit in order to feel the sense of calm that came with relaxing at that time or she may be trying to ready the surface she wants to rest on to make sure it is comfortable for her. Your local trusted veterinary clinic Gresham OR can help you better understand your pet.
