(The Girl You Lost To Cocaine): What are cats doing when they press on another cat’s stomach?
I think it’s similar to what cat’s do to people sometimes, but they do it to the stomach of other cats. What does it mean?

this goes back to when they were kittens and had to knead their mother’s tit for milk . an older cat does this for affection and comfort. it is sort of like when we want comfort food, a cat wants comfort action.
This procedure is actually a reminder of kitten hood. From the age of three weeks until weaning kittens spend a lot of their time kneading and purring around their mothers milk supplying nipples.
Kittens learn very quickly that the movement of their paws on either side of the nipple stimulates and increases the milk flow.
A soft and warm or comfortable area, whether it be our laps or the favorite cushion on the couch seems to bring out this kittenish behavior in cats.Answer by m!m!
