While serving active duty in the Marines the left leg had nerve damage resulting in medical discharge from service. I normally wear shorts which gives Digger the opportunity to clean my knee. Then he will sleep using my knee for a pillow. It something that happens everyday and I don't think I could have been able to teach a cat to do this. My wife says he knows where I hurt and he is taking care of me. Who knew angels were furry and had a rough tongue?
Our youngest MC always rushes off to meet my OH when he comes in from work can be a bit of a comotion with two dogs as well but he's the only one who sits chirping a welcome when he finishes at 12am me & the rest are Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Re: Why is my mainecoon ALWAYS licking me?

My boys are both lickers. I read Marley and me last weekend and it made me cry and one of my boys jumped up and tried to lick my tears away. It was sooo cute.

Re: Why is my mainecoon ALWAYS licking me?

I have a 5 month old kitten quite like this, she follows me everywhere! Every time i sit down shes straight on my lap! Even though most the time when i do sit down its never for long!! Except at night when the kids are all in bed and i guarantee she'll be there straight away

The only thing i find strange is that when I'm wearing certain material - like fleece, she'll lay on my lap and start digging her claws in to get comfy, and then she starts biting and sucking at my clothes as if shes trying to get milk from me!... Very strange, bless her! ...She has always done this, not sure why? I'd understand if she was taken from her mum too soon but she was 10 weeks when we got her.

Re: Why is my mainecoon ALWAYS licking me?

I have Birmans who like to lick me and one who also sucks and nibbles my nose and chin. He used to suck on the fleshy bit at the tips of my fingers as well. The sucking and nibbling is kitten behaviour. Puss knows you are his mummy.

Re: Why is my mainecoon ALWAYS licking me?

funnily enough my wegies or at least two of them like to nibble and lick the tips of my fingers and lick my legs. to me it says that they love me and its their way of being affection.
its ironic really that coonies and wegies are very similar in their natures

Re: Why is my mainecoon ALWAYS licking me?

my wegie Kalle is a licker. Usually it is arms or face. however I have been woken up at night before and found him licking my eye lids or the insides of my ears!

He is not like it so much with my husband, just nibbling his fingers occasionally. Also, he only sits on my husbands lap whereas he tries to get as close as possible to my face. I think he's a mommys boy which is lovely, however my husband thinks he may be trying to be dominant over me in the way a dog might?

What are peoples thoughts?

Thanks
Wow what a lovely cat
Maybe your husband is secretly jealous
My husband is, but i do love my cats more than him

Re: Why is my mainecoon ALWAYS licking me?

Willow is a licker too she will grab my hand, no claws, close her teeth on me (not biting, really gentle) then lick my hand - or any other part of me she can reach!
She will also come to bed with me and snuggle by my side all night - OH does shifts and if I am at work and he has been on nights so going to bed as I get up she doesnt go near the bed

Definitely a mummys girl - but she does sit on daddys lap too - I think she is trying to make sure he doesnt get jealous

Re: Why is my mainecoon ALWAYS licking me?

My Maine Coon Leo was a licker too. I was his "special" person as he saw it as his duty to keep me clean. It is definitely not dominance behaviour. My OH was a little jealous too and accused us of having an "unhealthy" relationship LOL. My other Maine Coon Oscar, who is dominant is not a licker but he loves to knead on a fleecy dressing gown and bury his head right into you till he overheats! Thankfully he has grown out of the nose biting!
