Question by 「カディ」Kaddy: Why does the cat stroke its head on my foot and meow when I walk past?
When I walk to school outside one of the houses there’s a cat that sits on the mat and comes up to me meowing. The first time I met it, it came straight up to me and let me stroke it and it stroked its head on my shoes. But when it hears other people come it runs back. Why? I mean when I first walked past it wasn’t scared, now when I walk past everyday it runs up to me. And does it like me because it strokes its head on my feet?
Answer by cat lover
The cat is actually ‘marking’ you with scent glands it has along its cheek. For reasons known only to the cat, it senses that you mean it no harm. It is not sure about the others.
