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.

The Royal von Meouw Dynasty: His Royal Highness the late Prince von Meouw,
Her Royal Highness Princess Gatita von Meouw, Nikita Duchess of Meouw and
His Highness Cuchi-Cuchi, next in line for the throne of Prince von Meouw.

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.

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

Yeah, what Zephyr does is exactly like the second picture. I think it's adorable when he sleeps that way.
