What Does it Mean When Your Cat Licks You?

Wednesday, April 4, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

Being licked is the first thing that your cat remembers. It was that washcloth feeling of her mama cat’s tongue thoroughly rubbing her coat, ears and every part of her little body. A mother first washes her kittens to get rid of the afterbirth and to stimulate the kitten’s breathing. The mother will also clean her kittens when they wander about then return to the nest. She is just claiming her territory and putting her scent on them. For cats, licking is social and an act of cleanliness. Cats groom each other to remove debris and to share scents. Cats will also scratch in a favorite place where the scent glands in her paws will mark the territory as their own. They may lick you which means that they’re cleaning you up and claiming you — just as she would for a feline friend or litter mate.
