Why does my cat lick me?
#1 - First and foremost, a cat will lick you if he or she feels comfortable and secure in your company. Like a mother caring for a child, a mother cat will lick her kittens – and the cat is simply caring for you in the only way they know how
Why does my cat purr?
#1 - Many people believe that their cats and kittens purr when they are happy. This is half true. Scientists believe that kittens have the ability to purr instinctively to communicate with their mothers; letting them know that they are okay when they are unable to meow
#4 - Cats will also purr when they are anxious or scared – as a way of calming themselves down in the absence of their mother
With all this additional feline knowledge under your belt, you’ll soon feel a whole lot more connected with your pussycat.
