Why Do Cats Fold Their Paws - 3 Main Reasons


1. For Body Heat Preservation

By tucking in their paws that are more delicate and aren’t covered in fur, they’re able to protect them from the cold- or at least warm them up.

2. A Sign Of Comfort

A cat lying with its paws tucked underneath them is considered relaxed, and they aren’t preparing to defend itself or run away.

3. It’s A Do Not Disturb Sign

No matter how cute, this loaf of bread position isn’t necessarily an invitation for us to cuddle with them.
