Why Do Cats Sit On Heads?

"In general cats like to seek out places that are elevated and/or places that or warm," K.C. Theisen, director of pet care issues for the Humane Society of the United States, told The Dodo. "Cats in general prefer those two things and the human head often coincides with that interest that cats have."

Another expert, Dr. Matheys, from The Cat Doctor Veterinary Hospital and Hotel in Boise, Idaho, says cats might gravitate toward our heads because they like the warmth. And some people say that our heads are the part of our body from which we emanate the most heat.

But other people say that we don't lose any more heat from our heads than we do from other body parts.

So, we're back to our original question: Why do cats do this?!

They might perch on our heads because they like the smell.
Whether it's our hair products or our natural scent, picking up their human's smell might give cats a sense of comfort, according to Dr. Matheys, and could make cats act like hats.

And cats have 67 million scent-analyzing cells lining their nose, compared to just 20 million in humans. That's a big whiff of the familiar comforts of home.

Still, it seems no one knows for sure why cats love our heads - and sitting ON them - so much. "That's kind of like asking why does rain fall," Theisen said. "Cats are mysterious creatures."
