Kissy Kissy Kitten

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
If there's one thing Evie is, it's tenacious. She knows what she wants, and she *will* get it! Unfortunately, she happens to be completely addicted to kissing my face!!

I love the fact that she loves me so much she will kiss or clean me, I know it's a nice, bonding thing. But, as I'm sure you all know, that sandpaper tongue on the sensitive face skin isn't so pleasant! So I've tried to disuade her from licking my face. Anywhere else is fine with me, but she *insists* that she kiss my face.

Since I scold her when she does it, and she's a smart kitty, she knows I don't like it. So now, she sneaks up to my face, oh so slyly, and then puts her lips right against my cheek. She will literally wait there, with her lips on my cheek, for minutes at a time. Then, when she thinks I might not notice, <lick>!

I know I could stop her by not letting her sit there in "attack mode" with her lips on my cheek, but it's just so darn cute! Even when my boyfriend "removes" her from my face, she sneaks right back. Silly kitty! ...either that, or my face is really dirty!

Does anyone else's cat like to give kisses so very, very much?

Oh, gosh, I'm totally in love with your cat! Bless her devious little heart!

My Pearl is a kisser, too -- a couple of times a night, she hunkers down on my chest to give me a good facewashing, and like you, I just don't have the heart to refuse. What I do is slowly tip my face up so she gets my neck instead, which is slightly less painful.

Once she's finished bathing my face, she tips her little head sideways to request some cheek scritching, so I comply... but there's something so restful about a purring kitty on your chest that, once the pain of the neckbath is over, I begin to drift off to sleep again... my head slips to one side... the scritching stops...

...And the next thing I know, Pearl has clamped her little paw around my nose to turn my face back toward her! Once I'm looking at her again, she tips her head sideways like before, and nothing will do but some more cheek scritching.

Gotta love kitties like ours, hm?

Absolutely gotta love 'em!! But Evie does not appreciate you making me laugh while she's trying to sleep on my chest! (She's done sneaking kisses for a little while)

Pearl is quite the charming little one, isn't she? That is so sweet!! Who needs sleep when you can have kitty love all night long?

Are you sure she's not asking you to return the favor?
Tomas does that to Sho when he wants a face grooming.

When Radar is in the mood for some affection, he sticks his nose in my face and tries to lick my eyelids. Thing is that he is a real drooler when he's purring and I end up with cat drool running down my face So it's soggy face and sandpapered eyelids for me.

When he starts on my eyelids I gently say no and push his head away. I can't say it's worked though. I'm not going to scold him for being affectionate, he's one of those cats that loves a bit of affection but it's very much when he decides, the rest of the time he'll duck away if I go to stroke him, so I don't want him to get the idea that those affectionate moments are a bad thing. Even if it is a bit rough on the skin!

Karma does that everytime I pick her up, no matter what. At first I thought she liked the taste of my mosturizer but I changed it and she still does it. I find if I put my hand between her and my face she will lick that. She also likes to hold my face while kissing. Sometiems claws are out sometimes not. Either way she makes it so I can't move. I consider it free microdermabrasian by Karma. My skin looks much better when she is done. She is saving me tons of money

that's so sweet that she holds your face. awww. I'm sure it's not the most comfortable thing, nor is having a rough kitty tongue licking your face over and over. I know from experience, that can be quite uncomfortable after awhile.

This morning I woke up to Sonic sitting on my head and licking my cheek

How sweet!! How can you resist such lovins??

My Hannah likes to sit on my chest, held like a baby on my shoulder, and it's always accompanied with a couple of licks. I just nudge her head away with my hand after a couple of passes with that sandpapery tongue! My older cat, Callie, has just started giving me a couple of licks on my hand. Totally new for her and I've had her about 9 years now. She's not a very demostrative cat at all, so this is a huge step!

Ha! Yes, you're probably right, that's what she wants. But you have to draw the line somewhere!
