my cat often licks my hand or arm. is it because of salt (from sweat) that she likes or does she love me?!

It's preparing a site so she can kill you...

I assume it's affection, sort of, my two groom each other when they're in a good mood - I think it's a bit like that, like when you wipe something off a toddler, lol

I have a lickerGrin
I wonder if she uses it as a form of cleaning herself as she licks our hands then wants a stroke on the back of her head.

I like to think of it as a kiss.

But I like to think a lot of things, doesnt mean it's true.

Being woken up at 4 o'clock in the morning by having your nose licked is not the nicest experience.

Love! I knew I'd been accepted by our cats (after adopting them) when one night Minka strolled along the back f the sofa and licked my head then Dh's and sat down. When my mum came to stay she did the same to her after three days.

I had a cat that would wake me by licking open my eyelid! Freaky way to wake up!

bruffin · 02/04/2012 19:37

My cat is a rehomed cat. She had just had kittens but was very young herself.

One of my cats had taken to waking up DH by licking his armpit! So when the cats lick me, its love, when they lick him its for the salty sweat Wink

I have onw who shows affection by licking, but only hair, she also wakes me up by tapping my eyes
