My cat licks me a lot too but I know he is only using me to help him groom himself. Seriously though, I know he loves me and I love him. I think it's his way of showing me he loves me and wants me as part of his "cat family". Sometimes it is bothersome, like when I am on the computer and he is in my lap and licking my hand. I hate to stop him and he eventually stops if I give him something else to think about. It could be worse, your cat could always scratch you or hiss at you, take it as a compliment.

Sometimes our babies treat us like their kittens, and bathe us. I think it's very loving! Also, we have a slightlly salty taste that they like!

My kitty trys to groom our Lab. I think he(the cat) is mortified that the dog doesn't clean herself all day like he does.
It's like he is saying, "hold still and let me do this, you are such a mess".

Licking is a sign of affection. It's funny b/c my bf takes off his shirt sometimes too and Twinkie likes to really sniff around in his armpits with an occasional lick
