Hmmm, six months and not grooming his own face? Maybe not. Most cats after they eat, lick the inside of their front legs and then wipe it over the mouth and nose to remove any food. Momcats clean off any milk residue on their kittie's faces. Sometimes tho, you get a lazy cat who still expects momcat to clean his face, especially if there is a cat friend in the house who grooms him and licks his face for him. It's not something you can teach a cat to do, it's instinct to clean the fur so that other "predators" aren't attracted. So you may have a lazy boy there who wants you to do the job, and it seems POPEYA isn't interested. Keep a washcloth just for him, and wipe his face with a damp washcloth after each meal. Sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear.
