Do you do this with your cat?
They do this because they have a gland on the top of their head the produces an oil. They rub it on things to mark it as their own.
So what they are doing is claiming you as theirs.
While I was in labor, my cat kept coming up and head butting me during contractions. At one point she gave me love bites on my cheeks. ❤️ She was actually more aggressive toward my midwife than my dog, which was totally opposite of what I expected.
My kitten does this for up to 10 minutes straight just going to town on my face
The happiest boy ❤
Debbie Wilcox Wolanski I remember the day when you saw me with Lucky (bengal back courtyard) butting heads ☺️ You suggested I look into “kitty comforting” and now here I am. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Wintersmith only does it when I’m asleep to wake me up !!!
What does it mean when they sit on you like this?
All our cats have done this and showed their love so freely. Miss them. Becoming time to add some new whiskered sweethearts to the family.
The girls have been doing it with the baby for several months now. It’s to the point that he has started offering head boops to people. They do the same with my other child and I absolutely love it.
ok but what does it mean when she smells my mouth while looking into my eyes
3:00 am every day for the last two and a half years. Good thing he’s cute. 3:00 am!!!!
My precious boy Max who passed away 5 weeks ago after being told in February he had a week to live. My little soldier ❤
Yes, and she does this to a newly opened bag of cat food.
Then what’s it mean when my cat headbutts the cabinets? I’ve tried turning it off and restarting it
We head butt 10 times a day. Pretty sure one or both of us may have a perpetual concussion.
My girl did this as a kitten then stopped for years. She just started up again within the last couple months. She just turned 7 in Aug. Of course she started w my husband haha We met when she was about 2.5 but I think she likes him more now haha
My cat Harlow does this a lot. I never knew why, but I knew it had something to do with her loving me!
Skippy’s headbutts are few and far between but he loves to sit on my chest. I rescued him and he was a police confiscate from a hoarder house. I wonder what they did to him, but I know I make him feel loved and safe. He slept in the bed with me and the dog the first night I brought him home
Got a mouth full of fur when Miku headbutted me the other night. Turned my head to ask him what he was doing climbing over my shoulder. He came around to snuggle. ♡♡
My Zoey, cuddle baby and she loves to be on my shoulder
My cat headbutts for love, and aggressively headbutts for food.
My cats headbutt pillows becuse they wanna sit where the pillow is.
I am Binx, I love all people! I show everyone who comes into my house my belly in hopes of bully rubs. Then proceed to rub all over them BUT only headbutt my the ladies!
My Sweetums does this to me everyday. She is just the sweetest cat in the world
My cat headbutts me so hard that she knocks stuff out of my hand. FEEL MY LOVE, HOOMAN.
My cat headbutt me so hard one time, she made my eyes water. She took a running leap.
My cat waits at the door for my husband to come home and when he does she’s all over him.
I love em so much, you know you’ve made it as an owner when you receive a cat headbutt
