Oh yes...I think Miss Pickles has been talking to my Helen! Just wait until she's older and her tongue gets really, really rough! I've had her leave SCABS! no joke!!!!does anyone else's sphynx lick ANY exposed skin when curled up next to you as you're trying to sleep? My Pickles always always always licks until she dozes off. its nice of her to be affectionate, but the gesture stops seeming nice when i lose skin in cat tongue sized patches all over my body.
Sophie suckles my cheek and chin and kneads my neck. It hurts! Sometimes its in the middle of the night and I'm too foggy to be able to stop her.OMG yes!! Especially when they make those groaning noises when you disturb thier sleep. They get comfy and don't want to move. Kreacher tries to suckle whatever bare skin he can find and kneads till he passes out. Unfortunately it's usually a butt cheek lol Wish he would do it to my back...would be a nice massage!
It doesn't always work, but every once in a while I can put the blanket over Helen's head and she's content to lick that... especially if I wrap her up really good and she can't find her way out!! (desperate measures)i should start sleeping with a blanket over my face, that sounds like a good idea. I don't know why Pickles does it, but its part of her nightly routine, and because of it, it sometimes takes me an extra hour or more to dose off cause each time i get comfy, so does Pickles, and depending on how my arms and legs are, she ends up licking some very sensitive skin, like my inner arm or lower stomach. it drives me crazy! and it HURTS!
My cats love when I sleep on the couch, too! I like to sleep on the couch on the weekends (because it's my house and I CAN DO WHATEVER I WANT!! ) And all four of them sleep on top of me when I lay on the couch...almost 40 pounds of hot cat to keep me warm. I love it!Haji is STILL cuddling with me this morning. Yesterday was one of those fun drunk pass out on the couch nights and Haji loves when I sleep on the couch because it's smaller than the bed and he sleeps right on top of me. I woke up at 10:45 and he was still in the same spot!
LOL...They will never do it where it feels good! Habibi--the one in my avatar pic-- loves to lick, lick, lick--most of my others just knead constantly in one place til it hurts. I've tried moving my body to try to direct the kneading to someplace like my shoulders where it might feel good, but they have some kind of sonar or internal GPS that can direct them back to the milimeter of the place where they had been kneading before I moved. I finally have to shoo them away or end up with a bruise.OMG yes!! Especially when they make those groaning noises when you disturb thier sleep. They get comfy and don't want to move.
