Why does my cat head butt me, then meow, before placing her paws on my lap while I’m computing, but never jumps up? — 3 Comments

  1. Yeah, my head-butting cat “Buddy” was so forceful with it that it was comical. He’d be on the counter or I’d be down low, then I would see it coming and I’d bow my head so our noggins hit hard like a couple of rams. It was hard enough to make a sound, and we both got a kick out of it. I haven’t had another cat who does that, and he was goofy and extreme in many ways and always made me laugh. All my other cats just push their heads into my hands. Boring!

  2. This is just my take, as a cat. You are alpha, and I am Cat. My world. You are allowed, because you are Alpha, because you feed me and give me full protection. If I, as a cat, accept you, then you become part of my world. Given that, you become my small, intrinsic, intimate fellow being. I accept you as a fellow being, object, companion. That is you, as your tall, weird, tall weird upright self. I’m not obtuse, you know, I’m a Cat, just as much as You are.
