What is a cat doing? A cat is rubbing its face against its master's face and purring. I am looking for an English equivalent for the Russian verb "ластиться".

Hi Iris, Going by your description alone, because (of course) I don't know the Russian word, I'd suggest the verb 'to fawn': 'If an animal such as a dog or cat fawns on/upon you, it is very friendly towards you and rubs itself against you'. HTH

Another possible translation for ластиться is "make up to"
