I headbutt you!

Lately, when I show up to take care of Mimi, we say hi by headbutting each other, usually for about 5 minutes..
I thought we were done today, so I walked away from the counter, she reached over and put her front paws on my elbows and started headbutting me again, I love it!
Do you know why cats headbutt you?
It's their way of communicating with you, they are happy, affectionate and are content.
Another reason is they are leaving their scent on you, marking you as their property, i.e. they love you!
Lastly, they want you to pet them and give them love.
Mimi is a sweet fur ball of love.
