This month’s cat vocabulary is the word cuddle. It is an important word to cats who love to cuddle up to each other and to their human companions. They don’t all like to cuddle up on our laps. Some prefer to lay on top of us when we’re laying down.
Or they simply cuddle up to us when we’re sleeping. They may cuddle up to our legs, arms, or even the top of our heads. Our heads tend to be the hairiest part of our bodies and cats know that. When they cuddle up to each other, they are in contact with hair typically. That’s why they picked the top of our heads.
The kitten I bottle fed tended to sleep cuddled up to the top of my head. After he was fully grown, he was so big he could curl up around the top of my head. I loved waking up to him there.
