Why do cats rub agnst your legs?
As cats get older they are more prone to having arthritis, which is a condition that affects the joints and other parts of the body. In some cases the body simply runs out of cartilage and the cat can no longer use certn joints and/or becomes restricted as to movement.
Cats rub on your legs for a variety of reasons. Some of the reasons include
1. Cats like to stretch their legs. The joints are not meant to be used as much as the rest of the body, but because of their longevity, their bodies need to be moved to keep the joints flexible. Your legs are a great place for cats to stretch, and since your legs are close to the ground and easy to access, this is a popular place for cats to stretch.
2. Cats feel less pressure if they are in contact with the ground. In the wild, cats have a very interesting system for being able to move around. If the cat is not moving, it just lies on the ground. If it is on a branch, the cat can feel the pressure of the branch on its back and it will push off of the branch to allow itself to move. The branch is still supporting the weight of the cat, but it is allowing itself to move while it is supported. As humans we are much more flexible than our wild cousins, but still need to be careful when walking, sitting, or laying on the floor. Cats are very aware of pressure and are often uncomfortable with any type of contact with your body. Cats feel much more comfortable if they are in contact with a surface that allows them to move around, whether on the ground, a branch, or in a box. The ground and box provide some relief from their pressure.
3. Cats like to groom. Your legs are a great place to rub, but if the cat wants to feel your hr, there are places you can provide it. Cats like to groom by licking and scratching. They often use their tls to help them in this activity. They love to use their claws to help scratch away. They often scratch your feet when they are in a playful mood.
4. Cats enjoy scratching posts. Cats are very visual. The first thing that they do when they are exploring is to look for things to see and to use their whiskers to feel. If they see something interesting, they will investigate it and use their claws to feel the surface. As they explore, they are often looking for things to grab and hold onto. Cats can often be found sitting in a corner of a room or in a doorway or in a closet looking for something to hold onto. Some cats will find a small scratching post to use. When a cat is using a scratching post they often start with the front legs, working their way back. They use their front legs to lift the post and then they use their back legs to push on the post to get their claws in it. The post usually provides them with some level of comfort.
5. Cats like to climb. Cats enjoy being able to get up in a box and look around. They like to be able to see from a position where they are safe and comfortable. Cats that climb are often very interested in looking at the top of things. They often enjoy watching you as you are getting ready for bed and when you are lying in bed.
6. Cats like to be held. Cats that are in a box will often be very interested in being held. If you put your hand into the box, they are likely to start rubbing agnst it. They will often start rubbing at your hands and then slowly work their way over to your body. They are most comfortable when you are holding them. Cats that climb tend to like being held, especially when you are in bed.

What do you call your cat?
There are many different names for cats. Some cats are called house cats and some are called barn cats, but the one thing they all have in common is that they are cats. The different names can refer to the size of the cat, its habits, or its personality. In my mind, there are no such things as small cats and big cats. All cats are cats and they should all be called cats. The size of your cat, the breed of your cat, and the personality of your cat are all separate questions that I address in my book, but it is important to first get to know your cat so that you can talk about them all at the same time.
When we discuss cats as a single group of animals, there are four major groups. We have domestic cats that are kept in homes, cats that live in feral environments, feral cats that live in homes, and wildcats that live in nature.
Domestic cats are kept in homes by humans. They can be from different backgrounds and the cats that people own are often referred to as pet cats. While cats are sometimes referred to as house cats, this does not mean that they are kept indoors all of the time. Domestic cats can spend their entire life in a home and still be called domestic cats. However, the cats that are most commonly referred to as house cats are ones that are kept mostly indoors. They are often kept in homes by humans because of a love for animals.
Feral cats are cats that have become wild. There are also feral kittens and feral cats, but they are not considered to be domestic cats. Feral cats are not pets. They live on their own and they can only be considered feral if they have never lived in a home with humans. They may not be socialized with humans or allowed to be around people.
Domestic kittens and cats are often referred to as barn cats. However, there are some cats that have never lived in a barn and cats that have only ever lived in barns. Some cats that are referred to as barn cats have never seen a barn at all. Some cats are rsed for the purpose of being kept as pets. They are
