Cats that are separated from their moms since the stage breastfeed will be more frequent massage than the cat that is wrapped when it is big. They do that because it is not satisfied to breastfeed its mom, so that behavior continues to be carried until they are grown, even often coupled with the show in clothes or pillows.
In other senior cats, massaging is done because of their instinct to make a comfortable bed. Just like when their ancestors set grass or dried leaves to sleep in the wild.
