Two of my cats (both female) do the air-knead, also. Our tortie does it the most. She is not so much psycho as stupid, though. She is a silly little klutz but she is always purring and loves everyone. Sometimes she just plops down and purrs for no reason at all, but we can hear her across the room. She also plays fetch better than any cat I have ever seen.

involuntary

1 : done contrary to or without choice
2 : COMPULSORY
3 : not subject to control of the will : REFLEX


Nope, does not follow. Just because they are non-human does not mean that they do not make choices and do things that are not reflexive actions.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
