You might wonder what does this behavior mean:
Affection – rubbing their face on you is a sign of affection and they also like to leave their scent behind and pick up other scents.
Territory Marking – Cats like to rub their faces on objects to leave their scent behind (they call it bunting). This is done through small scent glands around the mouth, chin, face, ears, and neck. Bunting is frequently done by male cats.
Anxiety Relief – If the cat is in an unfamiliar environment, it makes the cat feel more comfortable to spread its own scent around.
