My question is strange: I have 2 cats (1 at 1 yr - the other 6 mos) both are males and are extremely affectionate. They lick you all the time. Anytime you pick them up they have to start licking your face and grab on to hold your face still, now I think it's cute, it's also pretty painful. The younger one constantly licks my hands and will not stop. Are they just loving or is there any other reason they are this affectionate?
They will probably outgrow this but do not encourage this behavior. They may have been weaned from mother too early. good luck, vetcare
