The Need to Knead The Need to Knead

Kneading, the motion cats make by pushing in and out with their paws, is sometimes referred to as "making biscuits," as it resembles a baker handling dough. It is almost always done on a soft surface like a pillow, another cat, or even your lap. Often, kneading is accompanied by purring, and some cats go into an almost trance-like state as they knead with a steady, rhythmic motion. Explanations for this behavior vary, but it is without doubt an instinctive trait.
