Why Do Cats Lay on People?

One of the ways cats show affection is by laying on their owners or other people they like. Cats show affection differently than dogs, and the fact that a cat wants to be close to someone should be considered a compliment.

Cats show affection in a variety of other ways. When a cat purrs, it is because the animal is happy and relaxed. When a cat is curled up beside an individual and is purring, there is a good chance it is expressing love. Cats also knead their paws on soft objects when they are feeling content and happy. This behavior originates when the cat is still a kitten. The kneading action helps to stimulate a mother’s milk during nursing.
