Has anyone ever...

Seen or owned a cat that walks up to you and rubs his face on yours repeatedly?
Because i can not escape this cute little pooper.
Sid Vicious [little 6 week old kitten] likes to climb on my chest and rub his little face on mine, then he lays down on my chest and keeps rubbing his face on mine, and he kicks me in the face.
lol
How weird is that?
All my other cats hate when your face gets close to theirs.. but this one... hes a strange one..

Back when I fostered kittens I had a few who did that all the time. Nothing to worry about though its a good thing, he is claming you are his own.

This is very common cat behavior. It is how they show love and affection, AND how they mark their scent on you, claiming you, bonding with you.

My daughter and I rescued two tiny little kittens a few months ago when their mother abandoned them out in the field behind our house. It was so cold, another hour and they would have been gone. I barely managed to revive the one.

Anyway, we had to bottle feed them for weeks they were so tiny and of course they came to think of us as their mammas. The bonus was that I had adopted a new female Border Collie from a rescue shelter just a couple months earlier and she just stepped right in and took over mothering them. She cleans them and plays with them and sleeps with them and everything!

Anyway, they crawl all over me and my daughter. It's cute but when I'm trying to work on my computer and one's walking across my keyboard attacking my fingers and the other's on top of my head, well it's a bit annoying - lol!

However, they are going to make wonderful cats. We live on a farm/ranch and so a lot of our cats end up being a little stand offish since they are often born away from the house and we don't see them until they are too big for us to catch. So it's nice having really tame kitties again!

Oh, and my daughter named them Rico and Skipper from the Madagascar Penguins cartoon show - lol!

Fae has been that way since she was a kitten. She loves to lay on my chest and lick my nose. In fact if i pull my nose away while she is licking she will bite my nose.

Sebastian lets me kiss his nose but isnt much for the face to face contact the way fae is.

Haha. Well Tigger rubs his nose on you, but you dont want him to, he has kitty allergies, poor little guy.. so he'll be rubbing his nose on your face and sneeze like 3 or 4 times. lol

Had never happened to me until this morning when my boyfriends cat decided that she needed to rub her face against mine. I think its was Spooky's way of claiming ownership of the pillow I was using

More likely Spooky was claiming YOU. Cats release pheromones in glands near their jaws, and rubbing her face on you puts her own personal smell on you.

ours does thats. I think it is his way of shooting hair up my nose. He rubs his teeth on me... its sent marking and lovey and obnoxious sometimes. Just like my dog has to lick my face constantly

Bella never stops licking. [My 120 lb wolf/rot/gsd
and Sasha doesnt lick at all.
Animals are so strange sometimes.
Sid likes to curl up on my chest and rub his face on mine.
And now i have a cat that sits at my girl and meows and meows, and meows and meows. D:
