Just as you might snuggle up next to someone on a cold night for extra warmth, your cat does the same thing.
Your cat shows ownership of her territory by marking it with her scent. One of the ways she does this is by rubbing her face against things.
Sleep is a vulnerable time for every creature. While you and I know we’re relatively safe sleeping in our homes, cats don’t quite see it like that.
Cat behavior consultant Dr. Mikel Delgado told Catster that cats sleep together “both for warmth/comfort and because it’s a social behavior.”
That said, even without feline senses, you can hear another person’s heart by placing your ear to their chest.
Cats sleep an average of 15 hours a day, with some enjoying up to 20 hours of sleep! Spending that much time asleep, your cat needs to find a comfortable sleeping position and several cozy places to nap.
As I already said, cats seek the most secure area to sleep – a spot where cats can let their guard down and not worry about predators sneaking upon them.
You probably know that cats love certain smells, such as catnip, silver vine, salmon, etc. But do you know that your kitty can like your body scent as well?
Some cat owners swear their felines sleep on their chests to keep them safe from things that bump into the night.
Do you know cats can smell it when you’re stressed or ill? That’s because cats have an excellent sense of smell and can detect even the slightest chemical changes in your hormones.
