Put a piece of paper in the middle of a football stadium and soon a cat will come and lie on it. Cats like to lie on things pieces of paper, folded towels, clothing, books, whatever.

There are several possible reasons for this. For one thing, cats like to be near us. They know that if they plop themselves right under our noses, so to speak, they will get attention, and it is usually good attention. They have a need for warmth and security, and this obviously fills their need. They also want to leave their scent on anything that belongs to us because it makes them feel more secure. Whenever I wash my comforter and put it back on the bed, KatyKatt hops up on the bed and proceeds to 'remark' it with her paws.

Cats also like small spaces, and that might explain why they will pick a small defined area like a folded towel or skirt on a larger area like the bed. It might be just instinct or it might be that need for warmth that draws them to an added certain texture of material.

Whatever the reason, it's just another fascinating aspect of your cat's behavior for you to observe. So when your kitty is suddenly lying on your newspaper right under your nose, take advantage of this compliment and pay her some attention. The quirkiness of cats is just one of the reasons we love them and find them so fascinating.

Here's a picture of my cat, Katrina, who loves to lie on folded towels.
