the kneading action of a cat with its paws, while sitting on a human, resulting in tiny claw pricks in the skin, similar to acupuncture. Usually performed on the chest or breast of the human, while the human is petting the cat.
I know when my cat, McGee, is content because he starts purring and performing catupuncture on me. This does not make me content!
