Why does my cat lick the tip of my nose?

Asked by artichowl (191points) October 8th, 2010

Whenever I’m sitting or laying down he jumps up and licks the tip of my nose. Then I tell him he’s a fruit loop and he licks the tip of my nose even more.

Your nose is obviously a salt lick.

Some of my cats do this as well. Some say it is becasue of the salt and oil on your nose, others say it is similar to the method of affection they shared with their mother. (I prefer to believe option 2)

I like to think of it as a loveable kiss. They don’t really have lips.

Gracie does it as a greeting when we first see each other, or once in a while when she’s trying to wake me up.
