HEAD BUTTING

Modern Cat - - Behaviour -

Does your cat butt you with his head? Called “head bunt­ing” by be­haviourists, this be­hav­iour is how some cats say “Why, hello there. I like you and feel com­fort­able around you.” It’s also a cat’s way of mark­ing you with their fa­cial pheromones to distin­guish you as one of their group. Side note: if you have a multi-cat home and see your cats’ cheek-rub each other, this is a sign that there is har­mony among your cats. If your cats are not get­ting along, you can groom them in turn with the same brush to help es­tab­lish a group scent and pro­mote peace in your house­hold.
