Why do cats rub against your leg? (or anything else for that matter)

A cat will rub her head or the side of her chin against your leg or any object, furniture, or wall to deposit her scent on them as part of her territorial marking. She uses her glands on her forehead and around his mouth and chin. These glands produce chemicals called pheromones, which she transfers by rubbing against objects.If you see a cat sniffing intensly then she is trying to determine if the scent was produce by another feline or animal and if she needs to watch out if that animal might still be around.So if she is marking her territory on your leg…does that mean she thinks she owns you?P.S. Sometimes they rub against something just to scratch the side of their chin or to groom or get rid of falling hair.
