cats  why


Question by  sagasrikanth (54)

Why does my cat want to lay on my body?


Answer by  andybdrums (185)

Most likely, your cat likes your warmth and/or wants you to pet him/her. My cat(who's laying on me right now) usually comes and lays on me when she is hungry or wants to be scratched. When they want attention, they know how to get it(i. e. sitting in front the screen).

Cats like closeness with other living beings. Feral cats live in colonies and often huddle together for closeness, security, and warmth. Since owned cats don't generally have a lot of other cats to do this with, they want to lay on you. They see you as being one of them, and want to lay on you for warmth and security.

Mostly a cat will lay on someone to show dominance or affection. When a cat lays down on your chest and just sits there, it is most likely to be the cat showing dominance. However, if a cat lays down in your lap and sleeps that is showing affection.

Mostly, your cat wants to lay on you because you are warm. You may also smell pleasant to your cat. The cat may also want you to pet it and give it attention. If it is sick, it will more likely stay away from everyone, so it is probably not a bad thing.
