Tiger's way of "bunting"  

Posted by Lara

When cats rub their heads up against you- an affectionate activity called "bunting"- they are actually tapping into special scent glands located on their cheeks and near the temples to mark you as belonging to them. This friendly gesture- which is much better than being marked with urine- could be considered the feline equivalent of a promise ring. Tiger does not only rub her head against me but she licks a lot like a dog. I think this is her way of showing her affection and making a mark of belongingness which I really don't like that much when she starts licking my skin because her tongue is very rough.
