Hello, sham/an/s. /sci/entist here, I have a question about cats. Specifically, my cat. Pic related; it's not him but I'm pretty sure it's the same breed.
Anyways, him and I have grown very close recently. I'm giving him all the attention he can stand and a soft, warm home after he returns from the cold winter wilderness, and almost every day we have some kitty-cat snuggles.
However, he's picked up a weird habit recently: he's started licking me a lot.
What's up with that? I know it's a sign of affection when dogs do it, but knowledge of dogs generally doesn't work for cats. An alternate explanation I came up with is that it might have something to do with the therapeutic lip balm I wear, but I've been wearing that since before I even got him and he's never found me so tasty before. In addition, it's bitter as all hell. Alternatively, he may be considering eating me, as every man, woman, and child knows that cats are dicks.
So, /an/, do you have any experience with the tricky tongues of curious kitties?
