Because I'm bored and lonely, I'd like to know: why does my kitten touch my face? He usually does it after we wake up or sometimes when we're cuddling/laying on the couch. He likes to press his paws without his claws out against my face--usually he presses them against my eyes, nose and/or mouth and sometimes he likes to stare into my eyes when he does it. He's done it to my boyfriend before too where he's pressed his paws against his lips.
Is there any reason for this behavior? I think it's pretty cute and my cat (Cooper) is the closest to me when it comes to humans, and is very affectionate. He's a bengal, if that helps.
