calico licker

I have a 1 year old calico cat named gypsy . She always comes up and licks my face or arms or hands . Is this normal ?

Answer by Kate
One of my cats does this while his brother doesn't. I think it is so cute and lovely as i believe it is his way of showing affection as grooming to a cat is a very social activity.

I really wouldn't worry, just make sure you wash after you have been licked as a cats tongue can carry a lot of bacteria.

best wishes Kate
