Have you ever sat there and wondered, ‘Why does my cat lick me?’
There’s a number of reasons our felines love to lick us. And most of them are to do with showing their affection.
It’s one of the ways a cat can look to create a close bond with their pet parent. This could be linked to their own mother grooming them when they were a small, vulnerable kitten, and they’re now exhibiting the same loving behavior to show you that you’re part of their family.
Alternatively, the occasional lick here and there could simply be because they’re after a little bit of attention, or maybe they just enjoy the taste.
