Why does my cat always rub its head on me?

The behavior that is often described by cat parents as “heat butting” is actually head bunting. Cats have scent glands all over their body and they use them to leave a scent mark on objects (and in this case, YOU). The bunting and rubbing are reserved for bonding, social, comforting and friendly purposes.

Why do cats like to rub on your feet?

Cats have scent glands on the side of their faces. They rub them against things to “mark” them as as theirs. Your feet are the part of you you cat sees the most and can reach the easiest, so she's marking your feet. So, your cat is claiming you.
