Licking Cats

Licking Cats

My cat Marzapane has an odd habit. She is a licker. She will lick your face like a happy, drooling dog would do. It is cute but it gets strange. She is obsessed with licking the mini blinds. Maybe she likes the dust? But she also licks envelopes and boxes and sweatshirts and the shower curtain and the couch. The list goes on and on. She gets a lot of attention so I cannot imagine why she does this…I think she has a problem or she is just weird.

cat lickng blinds by: janetta My kitten that i got for Christmas last year licks the mini blinds. Until now i never knew why. He licks them because he wants them open to see out. Very very strange but that’s what makes me love cats even more….lol.

My cat does this, too! by: marallie My cat has started doing this, too. A friend told me she might have some kind of deficiency (vitamin or mineral). She is very thin but otherwise seems healthy. Her last vet check-up was fine. Her sister is fat as a frog though and they both have access to dry food at all times. I just don’t know what to make of the licking.

Blind Licker by: Anonymous My cat started recently licking the vertical blinds. Once he starts it is like he is crazed and cannot stop. I need to chase him out of the room. He will do it for a long time. Usually in the middle of the night when I am trying to sleep. I was afraid the weighted bottom pieces may be lead also but he licks above that. It is crazy. Why would they suddenly start doing that?

Cat with bad breath by: Amanda My orange tabby (Lola) is a big fan of licking mini blinds. She likes to lick a lot of other things as well. The only problem I have with this is that her breath is truly nasty. When she starts licking you can smell it from several feet away. Also she likes to lick my hands. When this happens only gasoline gets rid of the fish breath odor. She also cleans herself often and this leaves her smelling like tuna. Even though she has the worst breath of any living animal I still love her!

My cat does it too by: Barbara However, he just does it when he is hungry. I was stunned to read someone else had a cat that does the same thing.Barb

Window blind licker LOL by: Anonymous I just googled “cat licks blinds” because my cat Trevor does the same thing, I originally thought it might be because they were a little cold and/or damp from being by the windows. Other than it being a little odd and annoying at times, I’ve never been concerned until I mentioned it to a friend and she made a comment about how the blinds are probably made in China and I shouldn’t let him do it (lead concern). I’ve seen nothing that would make me concerned about his health, but admit I’m now a little paranoid.
