Poll question: Why does the cat only knead the comforter when I'm under it?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. Through trial and error, she's discovered that
it only annoys you when you're there, under her kneading paws.
Cats are evil. ;-)

3. Oh it doesn't annoy me at all. Just when she misses and makes holes
in my arm, chest or neck. I'm trying to train her to stay away from the carotid artery at least. :)

4. For pure contentment,
pleasure and joy! It's the least we can do for our furry friends, after all, they are a gift for us to cherish.

I'm still mourning my cat who passed away nine days ago.

6. You have my every sympathy
If anything happened to this little monkey I would be bereft.

10. Thanks Billy!
It's been a bit strange here without her. Just cocooning today. But I take comfort in the thought that she lived a comfortable life.

5. I go with expression of happiness and contentment
Have you ever noticed the other times they do it? For us, it's usually in the evening when we're all sitting around together. Cats just love fam'bly time.

7. Your cat assumes you like it.
Dogs assume you like it when they lick your hand.
I bet your cat sometimes wonders why you're such an oddball. :)

9. I want to know why she always seems to jump on my balls when I'm sleeping
It's like the cat has some sort of nut-seeking radar. She never misses.

12. She's tenderizing you for later
:P

Maybe that's just my parents' cat--sometimes she gets a little rough if she gets too wound up when she's playing. Wouldn't be so bad if five of her six ends weren't pointy.
