Default Pressing paws to forehead?

Why do cats sometimes do this? I know it's not only mine because I've seen one do the same on YouTube.

Zephyr does that when he's extremely comfortable. I'm not sure why that's his reflex when he's feeling comfortable, but he does it a lot.

Their own forehead. And yes, they only do it when they're blissed out.

I'll try to take a picture if he does it again soon, just so people will know what we're talking about - but he probably won't if he knows I'm trying to take a picture of it.

I used to think the light was bothering them and I'd turn it off, LOL I'd also think they might have a headache and massaged their foreheads!

Prince likes it when I press the palm of my hand to his forehead and eyes when he's between purring and falling asleep.

I actually do something like that when *I* go to sleep. I usually press my fingers against my eyes, just helps me get into sleeping mode a little better.

My girls do that when they've tired of my antics. Usually accompanied by a quiet, but audible, "Oy, vey."
