When cats headbutt you, they’re depositing facial pheromones. Vets call this behavior bunting.

“Rather than territorial marking or ‘claiming’ someone, as is commonly thought, cats do this to mark something as safe—sort of like leaving a signal of comfort and safety. So you could think of it as a sign that they are trusting that person or environment,” Dr. Meghan E. Herron, clinical assistant professor of behavioral medicine in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at Ohio State University, told Vetstreet.

To show that they love you and that they injoy the attention your giving them. It also can mean that they want to be petted.

A headbutt (French coup de boule) is a targeted strike with the head, typically (when intentional) involving the use of robust parts of the headbutter's cranium as the area of impact.
