Why does a cat rub its head against your leg?

A cat has special scent glands found in different parts of its body. These include the cat's chin and around the eyes. When the cat rubs its head on you, it rubs off its scent on you. This is its way of marking you to claim you as "his". This is the cat's way of showing its deep affection for you. That's also why you will notice that when the cat does this, it seems to be in a loving and contended mood.
