When cats take their 'who mans' as one of them it can hurt like heck to have your nose washed!

My guy licks me before we go to sleep . It's kinda sad watching him age. He can no longer keep his coat mat free and he drools a lot. Anyway he is teaching me how to be the worlds best Cat groomer and I treasure every day I have with him.

My Rocky that went to Rainbow Bridge ( Profile pic ) used to start licking my forehead, then move to my chin and settle down on my lap and lick my whole left arm from my hand to my elbow ... every night ! Two years later my arm is still bald. LOL He lived to be 19 years old and diabetic for the last 3 years of his life. I have one calico ( Squeaky ) and she is 17 with no health issues. Thanks for sharing Barb :)
