Kneads You

So your feline is rhythmically pressing her paws one after the other, as if she’s giving you a massage. What gives? Chances are, she’s “making biscuits” because she’s content and happy, trying to alleviate anxiety or wants to mark you with her scent. The instinctive behavior begins shortly after birth, when kittens move their paws against their mother’s mammary glands to stimulate milk flow. If your kitten continues kneading as an adult, sit back and enjoy the massage. If it’s truly out of hand, you should talk to your vet.
