Cats’ love for rubbing against legs

Do you ever find yourself walking around the house, only to feel a gentle brush against your legs? That’s right, your feline friend is showing you some love by rubbing against you! But have you ever wondered why cats do this?

Cats have scent glands on their cheeks and the base of their tail, and when they rub against you, they are actually marking you with their scent. This is their way of claiming you as their own and showing affection. It’s like they are saying, “You belong to me!”

So, the next time your cat rubs against your legs, take it as a compliment. They are not only marking you as part of their territory, but also showing that they trust and love you. Embrace the love and enjoy these sweet moments with your furry companion!
