  • to get your attention. If they are on your book/newspaper/keyboard, you have to give them attention, and maybe you'll scratch them under the chin or feed them. Crazy cats!!

  • To get your attention. Why do they come back repeatedly when you put them down? Can't stand it, and it makes me crazy.

  • To be annoying!! LOL I would agree with everyone else, it's their way of making you pay attention to them. I have five cats who like to do this all the time.

  • Frank, my grey tabby, will also lay on the computer desk while I'm on it and put his front feet on the keyboard. When I try to type he smacks my hand. This is one of the reason's I call him Ferret Face and named him Frank Burns!!
