Default what does this behavior mean..??

my cat is a licker..

and by that i mean 70% of the time my kitten is either licking my face, hands, or feet..

does this mean anything significant? and should i be worried?

because someone told me that it means he is lacking something, such as vitamins or something along those lines..

thanx!

My cat is a licker, I just thought that it was normal since it's a she. I thought it was her way of making herself beautiful and attractive to male cats.

it means that your kitty loves you. lickying is a sign of affection. my kitten does it all the time. she likes to lick my nose, only problem is that she makes my nose chaped from all the licking. I had 2 rabbits that did the same thing. they were grooming me. I would pet them then they would lick my hand, then they would wait to be petted again. so i asume it's a silmuler thing with cats.

By licking you, he is saying that he accepts you as part of his family. Cats regularly clean each other as a sign of affection. You should be happy about this.

I agree with VP311. It is a good sign.

Oh shoot! I misunderstood your post LOL. And yes licking is one way showing their affection. Cats are sweet by nature and they like to lick a lot.

Our "licker" loves to go after the top of my dh's bald head. He is showing his affection for dh and dh shows his affection back by suffering through and allowing him to do it.
