Kneading is an inherited behavior formed in kittenhood. Kittens knead the mother’s teat to stimulate milk flow. This action of kittens is called ‘milk thread’ as this is carried out during nursing. When the kitten drinks faster than the milk flow, kneading helps them promote the flow of milk.
This behavior is brought out in any soft, warm area even in your laps! It is usually done when a cat is satisfied, content or happy. It is the cat’s way of expressing ‘I am comfortable with you’. When your cat kneads excessively in your lap, it means it has may have adopted you as a mother-figure.
