Why does my cat lick me?

Posted by Ally Cohen on

Good news, cat mums: it's another way they show you affection. "It's thought that because they live with you, they're grooming you as part of their group," Anita says. "Some cats also like to take in your scent from your skin, which is why some like to nuzzle into your armpits."

Cats may also lick humans to calm themselves if they feel nervous (in the same way some humans bite their nails.) All in all, this behaviour is all about bonding - so take it as a compliment that you're part of the crew.
