Question by catdevotee707: Wierd cat behaviour?
I have a siamese cat and sometimes, she likes to sit on my lap. But sometimes, when she gets onto my lap, it’s not to sit, enjoy the petting and pur, but it’s to do this wierd thing.
She would do this kneading motions with her front paws on my lap. I would say that it’s kind of like massaging, but she would flex her claws too. It’s not painful unless I don’t clip her claws for a long time.
I don’t think this is a normal behaviour for cats, and I want to understand why she does this. Has any of you experienced this kind of thing, or know about it?

that is one of the most normal behavoirs your cat will ever exhibit. it’s left over from kittenhood when they would knead their mother while nursing. cats do it when they are happy or sad or needing comfort or whatever…usually they accompany the kneading with some purring
