3 Reasons Why Cats Make A Praying/ Begging Motion With Paws
1. Your Cat Wants Your Attention
The behavior may be encouraged but getting your attention is usually the starting point.
2. For Balance
The concept is similar to why humans extend their arms on either side of them when trying to balance. Cats may do it for the same reason- at least at first.
3. It’s Soothing
