cat kneading blanket
Blanket kneading cat, clicking at birds, and walking on tip-toes. My cat does several strange things. She has two blankets which she loves to knead and falls into a deep purring trance as she kneads them. I don’t know why she has picked these two but they seem to relax her. She also gets so excited watching the birds out the window, she clicks at them.It’s not a meow but almost as if she is so excited that is the only sound she can make. I wonder if she is communicating with them.Lastly, she has a spot on the wood floor where she arches her back with hair standing on end and walks sideways on her tip-toes. Cat kneading blanket video
She only does it a few times a week and we never know why or when it’s going to happen. Maybe that’s where the name Scared Cat came from!
Comments for Blanket Kneading Cats
Kneading is left over from being a kitten. by: Nancy Out of all our (6)cats, only one kneads a blanket and actually suck on it. I found out that it is a leftover from when she was a kitten. Kittens knead their mother, as they suckle, because kneading actually produces more milk flow. Why some cats will do this and other don’t, is a mystery to me. No doubt it’s for comfort.
