Very often, cats love to come and nestle under your duvet or take up all the space in your bed at night. But did you know the real reason our feline friends behave in this way?
Cats love human presence
Very often, cats love to come and nestle under your duvet or take up all the space in your bed at night, and there is a reason for this. In reality, they are simply seeking human contact to feel safe, and of course to warm up at the same time. So if your cat doesn’t leave your side, even in bed, you should be proud and very honoured!
According to the part of the body that your cat chooses, the meaning is different: let us explain!
When your cat sticks to your legs
Does your cat love to place itself on top of your legs? It’s because they are marking their territory and leaving their pheromones on you. They are showing you that you belong to them and that they love you. Isn’t that adorable?
When your cat puts its head against yours
When your little kitty places its head by yours, they are releasing more pheromones and telling you they feel safe and trusting by your side. Reassuring!
When your cat kneads your stomach
When they lie down on you and start kneading your stomach, they’re letting you know that they’re happy and feel safe. This gesture harks back to the movement they made when they were born on their mother’s stomach to stimulate milk production.
When your cat sleeps next to you
If your cat loves to nestle up with you when you go to sleep, it’s a sign of trust. When they’re sleeping, it’s the time when they are most vulnerable. To give themselves up to this feeling at your side is therefore a sweet testament of love and safety.
