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.
