Misty does that, too. In her case I'm pretty sure it means, "Hey, human! I'm here, and your hands are here, but your hands aren't petting me! Pet me! Love me!"

Nito does this to me, in a slightly different context. If I'm giving him too many kisses, he'll wedge a paw against my face and push it away!

Re: Just wondering

Samson sometimes does it too, especially with my boyfriend (who he LOVES!).. I've noticed he does it most when he's in a really affectionate mood.. He'll often just lay there with his paw on your face, as though he's 'hugging' us back while we're snuggling with him.
