Toothing - What does it mean?

by Kelly

What does it mean when a cat pushes one of it's fangs against you? My cats only do this when they are happy so I am curious. Thanks.

Answer by Kate
It sounds like she is passing her scent onto you. Cats have scent glands around their mouth and rub them up against things to put the scent onto it. It may look like they are pressing their teeth aginst you but it is really onlt the scent glands.
