Is this normal?!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I know cats can sense when something is not right with their owners, but last night, me and my partner had an arguement. I went upstairs to bed and was crying. Smudge came and laid on my chest (she normally does this in the mornings when she wants feeding!) and started to lick my face (Im assuming she was licking my tears?!) then all of a sudden she bite my face. It wasnt a hard bite, and it didnt really leave a mark, but I was just wondering if this thing is normal behaviour for cats?

Any advice would be much apprieciated xx

Could have been a grooming bite - cats will do this to each other, or if you were making noise while crying she could have been trying to use that to make you be quiet - as a cat would with her kitten.

Yes it could very well be that Cats pick up when were stressed or upset as well, so it could have been a love bite to let you know she's there for you also

Pepper gets over excited when she is in lovey mode, and will sometimes nip a little. She is easily over stimulated, so I have to watch her. She doesn't hurt me, I would just rather not take the chance, so I have learned to watch for her small signals. Tail twitches, whisker twitches, more intense nose rubbing are the main ones.

Ouch!!!!! People have said when cats get too stimulated they bite. It is just too much for them so that is the way they express that feeling.

Mine gives love bites, but they are nice, gentle, and don't last long. Buuut if you pet her belly, she likes this, but if you pet her belly for too long she will bite on you (not nice and very different from love bites) in a playful way, not with malice.

I would guess your cat was overstimulated at that time.
