Morse was hanging out above my head on the couch grooming himself. Apparently when he finished, he decided I needed to be groomed as well, and started licking my hair. Maybe he just likes my shampoo, but I was super surprised by it. LOL!

Mine never do, but one day I washed my hair after a long time (I had been sick) and Prince seemed to love it, he licked my locks.

When I sleep in (and breakfast is late), my Sassy wakes me up by licking my hair :p Sometimes she also does it while we're playing, but then she takes offense if I try to move before she's finished. She'll put both her paws on my head and flex her claws against my scalp if I dare try to squirm away - she never actually hurts me, she's just so darn bossy when she thinks my hair is dirty!

CeCe likes to lick my hair when I'm in bed - oddly, that's the only time she does it. It's funny, because my hair is very long, curly, and fairly coarse in texture - so when she gives a little lick, it sticks to her tongue, and she has to do this weird "chewing" type of motion to get it off her tongue - but it doesn't stop her from licking again. Lol. I suspect she's learned it's the quickest way to wake me up AND get me moving (I don't want her to eat my hair and have it cause her issues, so I HAVE to).

I don't think it is as much liking your shampoo or body wash as it is to rescent you. My newest cat will always wrap herself around my legs when I exit from the bathroom, after a shower, in my robe. Before shower she will sometimes wrap around my leg, but mostly when I have been gone for the day

Mia likes to play in and lick my hair after a shower. When I am petting her after a little while she has to groom the hand I am petting her with. Sometimes when I am laying on the couch she will groom the side of my face.

Wow, Marshel, thanks for sharing, I love to discover new instinctual reasons I didn't know about why cats do a certain thing! This makes perfect sense! Now I understand why my cats always rub on me when they first see me after I've been away.

My male, Snickers does this to people who come over to my apartment. He rarely does it to me, but he loves to groom my friend Mark.
