Worse Than A Puppy

My kitten has a really bad habit of licking me every time he gets near me. He's worse than my dog!! I have never seen or had a cat that's obsessed with licking people. Anyone else have this problem with their cats or know how I can get him to stop? It's really bad if I'm trying to take a nap, he gets on my shoulder & starts licking my neck, face, or ears!!

My older black and white tomcat has always licked a lot. Problem is that most times after a few licks, he decides to give a "love bite." Not too bad unless he gets you when you aren't paying much attention.

Yeah, my cat does the same thing. He'll lick me at random all the time.
He does it alot when he's taking a nap, and he doesn't stop for like 5 minutes.

We are owned by several indoor cats as well as a few outdoor ones. One of our indoor ones, Miss Augie, can be relentless when it comes to licking. She usually goes for our elbows. She doesn't do it all the time. Seems to go in phases. We just try to ignore her. That doesn't always work, but we just understand that she'll move on to another annoying phase. If she weren't so cute/beautiful, we wouldn't put up with her goofy behavior.

Licking and love bites--yep. And since I do know where that tongue has been I make sure they never lick my mouth or eyes (I had one that always wanted to lick my eyelids!). My husband asked why cats like to lick us and I told him that they don't think we smell right (we don't smell like cats) so they want to lick us clean until we smell right. LOL I'm sure they are going for the salt or oils on our skin.

I had a kitten I took in when its mother could not nurse. I stayed up around the clock and fed it with an eye dropper. When he was finished nursing and was old enough to eat real food he still thought I was his mom and would knead me everytime he could - This was a pain as he would wake me up all night long!!!!

My Toy Poodle Jolie licks me all the time and when I want her to stop I hit her nose. It usually does the trick and maybe that might be a way for you to go.

Have a great day.

Reanie, my rescue kitten used to use my ear lobe as a pacifier. When I was not available, he used his little paw. Never knew another "thumbsucking" cat like that little one.
