Why do cats rub against us?

C  fakepath cat14

Q. Why does my cat insist on rubbing himself around me all the time?

A. As your cat rubs up against you, he is smearing you with scent from the glands on his body and face.  

This scent will mix with your own and will give him and you a familiar smell which is reassuring to cats who are very sensitive to the scents around them.
