why do cat bite your eyelases

Answer by Kate

Logie i don't know what you mean. I have never seen a cat bite anyones eyelashes and i would think that they would have a hard time getting to them in the first place. Is this a joke question or have i just misunderstood your question?

Cat biting eyelashes
by: Anonymous

My cat always cuddles up to me before bed or a nap, and she licks my eyelids then bites my eyelashes. It's a little weird but I think it's cute

There's actually a reason!

Sometimes cats like to groom people or other pets close to them. It's usually a way for your cat to say it loves you and it thinks of you as family 🐱

chew my eyelashes

My 2 cats do the exact same thing. It’s not like a bite more like a lick! It is not sore whatsoever but they just like to chew on my eyelashes!!

My 10 week old kitten Hunter actually bites my eye lashes in my sleep. I now have no left eye lashes :(

My male kitten does this....
by: Nicole

But then again, he is very playful.. attacks anything that moves, climbs my pant legs while I am cooking, etc. If I am laying in bed at night watching a movie, I can get him to do it, by glaring him and batting my eye lashes, as fast as I can. He loves this, however, I would not try that! He has scratched my eye before, just barely missing my eye ball. My cat also grabs my face between his paws and licks the tip of my nose. I think it's mainly personality, nothing to be concerned over! :)
