Sometimes, when a cat licks you, it could be either the most amazing gift or the most annoying thing.

When it’s the latter, it could be because you left it with the kids when you were out for the day, or because you told your boss you could only work an extra hour today, or maybe because your cat is so stressed he’s using up his energy on you.

But sometimes a cat will spend weeks or months licking you. And it’s the longest licking you’ve ever felt.

And to those people, it’s quite possible you’re right.

One woman, who says she loves the relationship between her cat and herself so much she’s turned it into a love story, told of when her cat started licking her so hard that she started thinking about it as a relationship.

And her friend, who wrote about her cat who licks her so much she started to think about it as a love story, said she didn’t see a problem with it.

They wrote: ‘One of the best things about having a cat is its unshakeable ability to make you laugh. Licking my face for hours on end is the best, or worst, way my cat can do it.

‘I don’t mind at all. It’s just the way cats are.’

And a friend, who wrote of a cat who licked her so much she started to think about it as a relationship, wrote: ‘I just really, really love cats. If that is a relationship, that’s so cute.’

For most of us, though, it’s probably better to think about cats as a service you’re paying them for.
