Cats/behavior question


I have a one year old neutered male Siamese mix. In bed at night he will purr & knead on me, and  hiss twice, then lie down & nap. I've had cats all my life & never seen this  behavior. Do you have any idea what's going on?

well the kneading and purring sound perfectly normal behaviour, in fact my own cat does this every night. As for the hissing, well I would put this down to the Siamese breed, they can be a little more vocal and eccentric i think that other cats. i would just put that down to his own unique character, it doesn't sound like it means anything. perhaps goodnight?

best wishes Kate
