I love the feel of a cat's tongue which some people describe as being like sandpaper, the purpose of which is for cleaning. Perhaps your new kitten just wants to help you keep your feet clean! As far as the fingers go, if I handle food and then wash my hands good, Persi can still smell the food on my fingers so licks them, I guess to try and have a little snack. Or perhaps he is just trying real hard to help keep me clean because he thinks I am a dirty old man.
Really, one thing I have noticed is that he does not lick everybody, just those he considers his friends. Just think, it takes a really true friend that would lick your toes.
