    yep all mine do it, either to me to to soft clothes around me :)

    I think it takes them back to being with mum, feeling, content happy and just makes them feel good :)

    Various cat behaviourists have confirmed it is the case :D

    It's a learned behavior from them when they are kittens. It's what they used to do to get milk and that was when they felt happy and safe. You may also find some of the start to dribble excessively while doing it! :)
