Cat Kneads

by Lora

Why does my cat knead on top of my other cat? Should I let him do this?

Answer by Kate
Ahh i have seen this before and as long as your other cat doesn't seem to mind i wouldn't worry.

The action of kneading is believed to be connected with getting milk from their mother, stimulating the flow of milk. however it is also a comforter fro them.

often cats will do this when they are settling down to sleep or are generally happy and contented.

All i can say is that he must have a strong bond with your other cat and feels safe and secure around them to display this behavior.

If it hurt or the other cat did not like it they would soon tell them to stop.

best wishes Kate
