It’s one thing to watch your moggie kneading the sofa, or kneading your lap as you sit with him. But it’s another thing altogether – and very sweet – to see your cat kneading and massaging a doggie friend.
Not all cats knead, and it’s not even known for sure why they do it. However, some think it could be a leftover comfort memory from their days of nursing, when the action was associated with the comfort of food. Or perhaps, as others have suggested, it’s another stretching and exercising action, to get all those knots out of tendons and muscles. Whatever the reason, it’s delightful to see these moggies massaging dogs and kneading the knots out of their canine friends. The doggies are certainly looking relaxed.
