Why do cats kneed before sleeping?

When kittens feed off their mother, they kneed their mother's stomach to produce more milk. When they kneed your lap, or anything else, it's because they feel at home, and love you like their mother. You have that connection like their mother and they had. So, if they do it in your lap, digging their claws into your leg, be happy!

oh my kitten does that to my stomach sometimes i think its looking for milk or something now i know thanks!
