Why do cats sleep in the legs?

The habits and nature of cats affects their lifestyle. Biologists followed these fluffy pets, and came to this conclusion: cats are all different and their behavior defies logic. For example, why do cats sleep at their master's feet? There are no specific explanations for this question, there are only guesses and assumptions.

Cat Features

It is still not clear why cats sleep in the legs of a person, and not in places specially equipped for them? The owners themselves find explanations for themselves. They claim that this is a strong love of the pet to the owner. Opponents of such an opinion say that cats have no attachment to a person, and they do not need his presence. But, you see, when a lot of people live in the house, the cat has its favorite, near which it is constantly located, even during sleep.

There is another strange feature of cats. They love the sharp smell of tobacco and the smell that the sweat glands of human legs give off. Of course, this is considered a version, but there is some truth in this.

Cats - heat-loving animals

If the cat sleeps in the legs, this is a vivid explanation that she loves warmth. Rugs, pillows, a sofa, an armchair are, of course, good places to sleep, but warmer than a cat under the battery or on the host. But, why exactly in the legs? There are two versions of this fact.

First, the cat warms the owner's feet with the warmth of its body so that it sleeps better in warmth. This is a kind of disease prevention. And, secondly, they believe that cats are very sensitive to already existing human diseases. After all, unhealthy organs have a fever, especially legs. And the cat, acting as a doctor, lies directly at the sore point.

If you believe in at least one of these versions, have the cat at your feet to console yourself.
