Cat Snuggle: Why Cats Love it?
Contrary to the belief that kitties are aloof loners, most are cuddly companions that need
your attention and love because they get lonely when you aren’t around. Snuggling not only
makes your kitty feel warm and safe, but it also allows him to spend some quality time with
Warmth and Safety
Cats like to snuggle in cozy, soft, safe places, a behavior they learn as kittens. Young kitties
can’t regulate their body temperature until they reach 3 weeks of age, according to the
Liberty Humane Society.
During this time, they snuggle with their mom and siblings for warmth and safety. Later in
life, your lap makes an excellent spot to snooze because of the warmth and security it offers
to your furry friend.
Adult feral cats huddle together for warmth on cold winter nights, just like when they were
younger, according to Alley Cat Allies. Your little furball isn’t any different, except that he
considers you part of his family, which is why he’ll cuddle with you.
Properly socialized kitties, who are exposed to people as kittens between 3 and 7 weeks of
age, consider humans just as desirable to cuddle with as other kitties, according to WebMD.
Companionship and Bonding
A kitty bonds with his owners and other pets in the home by sitting and snuggling with
them. This is especially true for a furry friend you have recently adopted.
While he might not want to be picked up, petted or even played with at first, he’ll likely
warm up to you by coming over and cuddling in your lap, according to the Stanford Cat
Simply sit quietly and allow your little one to come over on his own and sit either in your
lap or cuddle next to you. Soon your furry buddy will realize that you are nothing to fear
and, in fact, will view you as someone who is fun to spend time and snuggle with.
Cats not only enjoy the company of their owners, but also the attention that they get when
they spend time with them. Who can resist interacting with a kitty who has tucked himself
into your lap or bats his eyes at you as he cuddles up?
In fact, these behaviors should be encouraged because they are positive methods of getting
your attention, rather than negative ones. Ignoring such snuggly cuteness could result in a
kitty who decides to paw, scratch or meow incessantly at you for attention instead,
according to the Bond Animal Hospital.
Reward your kitty for snuggling by showering him with some attention, including gently
petting him, scratching him behind the ears or even humming him a soft melody.
