Cinnamon and I are just a few months away from our second cativersary in January. Even though she seems pretty comfortable here, it’s only in the last few weeks that she has started face-marking things.
Cats have a scent gland in their cheeks. When they rub the side of their face against something, they are marking it as theirs.
Until recently, she only ever face-marked my chin, and one particular corner of the coffee table. But she has begun to expand her operations.
Not only does she face-mark several other corners in the cabin, she has also started rubbing her face against the corners of things which were once inside the house, but left and then returned. Like my shoes, and the grocery store tote bags.
