This was a good post. I literally lean over and watch this one stray I care for drink his water.

TY Cher... I was going to comment with a story completely about the toungue and a bit more. I appreciate this post. I was going to research something related to this and I still will but this was my start. Deeply appreciated .

I have to add one more thing about a Moggy's tongue the alarm clock mode which is pre set for 6:00am and comes without a "SNOOZE OUR WEEKEND BUTTON". =^..^=

Enjoyed this story - my kitties loved Cheetos, not the sweet stuff. However, since I love chocolate, I made sure not to share that with them - didn't want sick kitties...or worse.

Our kitties do like a lick of ice cream Vanilla sometimes!
Most of LOVE cold flowing water.
Thank You

In deed, the tongue feels like sandpaper, but it's a sign of affection so I don't stop it when my cats want to lick me. It usually don't last long, so I put up with the discomfort and appreciate the attention.
