Why cats knead

Your cat has a lot of habits, and you’ve come to know and appreciate them all. However, some are a bit easier for you to understand than others, as they may allow for some common ground to form between the two of you. Others, like her kneading habit, seem to be a mystery to you. Why does she do this?

Your cat kneads in order to help calm herself down prior to resting. This means that she associates the behavior with a serene setting, and it offers her the opportunity to relax a bit more. This is generally because your pet kneaded against her mother as a kitten in to stimulate her milk production. She found this time in her life to be very soothing, and she carried this feeling into her adult life through kneading. Your local best vets Marietta, GA can offer additional guidance.
