My cat bites my head
I couldn't find any answers to this online, so I thought I'd ask someone here...
I recently took on ownership of my friend's cat. (He found her on the street in August. Turned out she was pregnant, so he kept her until after her kittens were weened. He wanted to keep her but had to give her away because she got into cat fights with his live-in girlfriend's cat.) So, I've had her for three weeks. Three times I've woken up to her biting my head. It doesn't really hurt, but I find the behavior odd. She has never bitten my boyfriend's head. I asked my friend about it, and he said she had bitten his head once or twice but never his girlfriend. Is this some weird dominance thing? Has anyone else had this happen? It's happened during the day too if I was taking a nap, so I don't think she's trying to wake me up to feed her (plus my boyfriend is the one who feeds her in the mornings).
Any takes on this would be much appreciated.
