There's probably a number of different phrases
for this particular cat trait; making biscuits
has to be one of the cutest!
Anyway, what is 'making biscuits' and why do
cats do it?
Whilst on your lap your cat may start to trample
you with her paws, purring as she goes. She
usually has a blissful look on her face.
A cat is returning to kitten-hood when she does
this as she was conditioned to do this as a
kitten to stimulate the flow of milk on her
mum's belly. When they dribble it is in
anticipation of the delicious meal she will
She is, in fact, demonstrating just how much she
loves and trusts you :)
