    My kitten Poppy greets me in the morning by "grooming" me. It used to involve just licking my hand but has progressed to licking my face (gross I know but she only does a couple of licks and I'm usually about to wash my face anyway). The past couple of times she has tried nibbling at my skin :eek:. Does anybody else's cat do this?

    Sounds as though she finds you delectable :lol::lol: You are her yummy mummy :thumbup::lol:

    Millie nibbles my finger/hand while also licking it but that's about it.

    When they are grooming themselves I sometimes hear odd saliva sucking type noises. So I assume that they sort of nibble their fur to clean it properly. She obviously hasn't worked out that my face has no fur! Or maybe I have a really hairy face and am just in denial :lol:.
