Cat likes to perch on owner's hand. Why?

The owner says that her cat loves to perch on her hand as seen in the video and does not want to be placed on the floor. The reason is fairly obvious.

  • It is a high 'perched' position. Cats instinctively like to go to high places as it protects them and allows them to look further and observe what is going on around them from a safe place
  • The cat is connected with her owner at this time. A bonding exercise. An expression of friendship.

If the woman had a couple of really great cat tree climbers with comfy platforms, I'd expect this habit to stop.

Her cat just wants the facility to climb. To move vertically.
