What does it mean when your cat sits on you? — 1 Comment

  1. My cats that have parked themselves on or against me have been mostly male for some reason, but I’m sure it hasn’t been because they wanted me to get up to do something. If anything it seemed as though they were trying to keep me from floating away, just in case I should have the mind to. But I agree that they wanted to be close to me. One thing it might also be is a show of “top cat” to the other cats. Or rather, second in command. My Danny, Buddy and now Einstein have all been in that spot. Cats do create a small society within a group or habitat, which though not as organized or well studied as some other animals, they still have the ability I think, but it’s not like other animals’. Cats are very nuanced. An interesting book on that is Cat Culture.
