It is great to hear that other cat do this too.
I am surprised that it was only about a week after adopting her that she started nose kisses. I thought it would take longer for her to accept me and my family. She has now nose kissed them all and seems to like to rotate which person she sleeps with.
We are also doing a lot of research on cat care as we had intended to adopt as dog. Minion just purred her way in to our hearts and a week later after our initial visit to the shelter to see who was there, we couldn't stop thinking about the kitten we saw. We decided, after talking it over that she was the one we all wanted to bring into that family!
Thanks for the stories and info on nose-kissing!
