Cat Tapping with His Paw
My cat is tapping with her paws? I woke up this morning to feel a tap-tap-tap on my arms and legs. I thought possibly it was my fiance, but awoke to find my 8 year old female cat tapping away, just like a human would do.
It was not your typical kneading, but in fact a tapping with her paws. She was also tapping on my fiance when she finished coming over to me. I can't find anything about this strange behavior on the internet. Can anyone recommend some good sites with information or advice on this issue?
The DVman talks about why his kitty face taps him every morning.
My Kitty will wake me up by tapping my forehead and crying for my attention. He usually does it just after the alarm goes off or at sunrise. I tell my co-workers that my cat wants to discuss the amount and quality of food remaining in his bowl.
Even though I have learned to fill his dishes at night he would still like a freshen up in the morning. For the most part Kitty gets me up so I will follow him.
As we walk together he cries all the way until we get to an open space, where he turns on his back and he allows me to scratch his tummy for a few minutes.
When he gets bored with making me do stuff he lets me go back to sleep. It is strange, but on weekends he often lets me sleep until about 9-10 before he wants to wake up for good. Well at least until the early afternoon cat nap time rolls around.
