I knead you

Newer Older

Cats knead their paws to show contentment; it harkens back to when they were kittens and kneaded their mother to encourage milk flow. Whenever Rufus sees me, the claws start moving in and out of whatever they are on, and the purr motor starts a hummin'. After 40 years of playing aggressively with cats, I am all too familiar with cat claws!
