Why do cats lick, wash or rub your face?

Wednesday Why!

Cats wash or lick other members of their social group, cats they are close to. This behaviour reinforces the bond and creates a “familiar group scent”.

When cats live with people these people become their social group. If your cat licks you it means they are showing you affection and this behaviour strengthens the bond between you from the cat’s perspective. Enjoy the cat love!
