Host: First up, licking. When your cat licks you, especially your hair, they’re grooming you just like they would another cat. This is a super positive social behavior that strengthens your bond and shows they want you to feel comfortable. Cats also lick to show affection. But, if the licking becomes excessive or intense, it might be a sign of stress or anxiety.

Host: Now, biting. This can mean a few things. Cats might bite because they’re playing, scared, or angry. When they’re scared or angry, you’ll notice their body language: they become rigid, bristle up, maybe hiss, meow, or arch their back. These bites are different from playful nibbles or love bites, which are more controlled and repetitive.

Host: So, why do cats lick and then bite? Some cats might bite after licking as a way to say, “Stop petting me!” Others do it as a continued sign of affection or as part of grooming behavior. When cats groom each other, they lick and nibble to make sure everything is clean, so this behavior can be completely normal.


Host: But what if the bite hurts? Here’s what you should do. First, never scold your cat. They’re just acting out their normal social behavior. If they bite, stop interacting with them. If you’re consistent, they’ll learn that biting ends the fun. And always reinforce positive behavior with lots of love and encouraging interactions.
