The Need To Knead

It sort of looks like they’re making bread by kneading the dough.  It’s almost always done on a soft pliable surface like pillow, blanket, cat bed or even your tummy! Kneading is an instinctive trait. Kittens knead on their mothers tummy  as they snuggle close to nurse. The kneading stimulates milk flow in the nipples. Kneading may also go back to the days when wild cats patted down tall grass or shredded leaves to make a soft, fluffy bed for sleeping or giving birth. Another reason is that cats have scent glands on the pad of their paws and kneading is a way to spread their scent on anything they choose. Their scent is a territorial marker. So always give kitty lots of love and a cat treat every now and then because some of his unique habits make him such a lovable pet.
