French kissing rats October 12, 2004 11:04 AM

Does anyone have a rat that likes to lick their tongue? I'm not sure how Rocky started doing this but he will even crawl up my shirt and pull my lip open to lick my tongue. It grosses me out but for some reason he thinks it is the bomb. I think he must be tasting my food or something in my saliva. BLECH!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Oh my goodness yes! Cookie used to rip my lower lip open to see what was inside. If I wouldn't open my mouth she would scratch at it like a dog scratching to get out! I think they just like the moisture in there, or the leftover food, or???????? That sure brings back fond memories of Cookie!  [ send green star]

Can't say either of my babies ever did this. However, i DID notice that both of them would always lick water off my fingers or hand, so i then tried licking myself to see if they'd lick saliva too, and sure enough they did! Gotta love the little weirdos.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

One of my dedparted girls, Shiva, would pry my lips open to do that. Very invasive but also funny at the same time (and kinda grose, but whatever). I think she just wanted to see what I was keeping in there. She even nibbled one of my teeth once to see what they were.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Yes! lol! Especially if I've just eaten something they think smells good. Some of our rats get curious enough to shove their entire snouts up our noses to try to find where the yummy smell is coming from. It's really gross, but hilarious!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Most of my rats give me kisses on the lips and some who will demand I open my mouth so they check out whats inside my mouth and get whatever I still have stuck in my teeth. Also if I have a runny nose I have one rat that loves to lick my nose. Who needs tissues when you have an automatic nose cleaner. (just joking) it's gross it makes me cringe and kinda tickles.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Yep,my ratties lick my lips all the time! It's cute, but I don't think they know what it means to humans. Oh well!  [ send green star]
