Why does my cat keep trying to groome me

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Any time my cat jumps on me, he starts wanting to lick my beard. I try to stop him, but he just keeps shoving his face into my chin...
Anyone know why?

when I first read this post I thought it was from the same person that started this thread...the one with the beard!!! Then I realized they are from 2 different people. .....................anyways when kitties do that, they are showing their affection for you....the big cats need grooming too!!!

I do think it is neat that she thinks that highly of me. She can groom me but when it starts to hurt I have to turn. The tongue likes to take skin off LOL.

Zissou licks my chin too but only while I'm asleep. I think its the same as us petting them. They can't pet back, so they lick us instead. Plus, cats groom each other so maybe you have become an honorary cat!

Or do you just have bits of food in your beard?

You're lucky Skittles stops at the tongue. Puppy seems to think we have fleas. After licking us sufficiently, he attempts to clean with his teeth. Not a bite, but like he's nibbling at the top layer of skin.

Pesky large hairless cats, we're so difficult to clean!

Heh, I was hoping that it was done out of love and that Avedis didn't just want to eat me. I love this cat. Thanks for all your help.

Skittles today kept putting her butt in my face and laying that way. I think she did it to give me the hint hay let me groom you or kiss my butt

I'm going to agree with the "he's just showing you affection" crowd.

I think my favorite thing I've ever read on this board was said about a similar situation, when someone asked why their kitty kept trying to sleep with them. Someone replied,

"He's just trying to be close to you."

I think of that every time my kitty does something (like rub my legs, which happens CONSTANTLY) I just think she's just trying to be close to me, to show me her affection. And I accept it. Even when it's inconvenient.

Yep, even my 4 week old foster kitten rubs and licks on my face when she's feeling full and sappy. Of course, then it turns into a 10 claw face grab with biting, and she gets the momma cat growl and she settles for being sweet again !

Lonestar is always trying to groom me and he has such a rough tongue!

Skittles is doing major grooming to herself and I think she feels I need it also. As I type she is cleaning my arm LOL.

We should all consider ourselves lucky that we're loved so much!

Skittles walked over to baby brat the puppy and licked her while she was asleep was so cute... Didn't last long baby though ya a friend but I walked in to the kitchen Skittles followed me and so baby did to. Skittles turned and chased her out LOL. Skittles did not charge or growl at her just ran her out. She hates baby around me if she is following me. She wants to be the dominant one. She was here first
