Licker or Lickee?

Another fun tidbit mum came across. To determine which cat is the leader in a group of cats, check out who always licks but never takes a licking!

Well we both are trying to be the leader!Both of us want to be the alpha cat and neither will give in to the other. So that gives us lots to contest with each other.

We didn't know that! Mr. Kelly always was the one being licked at our house, though. Especially by Lizzie, but then she was the mothering type.

Hmmm... Apparently, we are all followers here. We lick each other regularly But there ARE degrees of licking. Ayla licks the most, though she is oldest. Iza licks when licked. I get licked more than I lick. SO mebbe I am an Alpha Cat.

But dont tell Iza that. She is strong and domineering. We are still werking out the Alpha Cat status. And I LIKE being licked...

Between Boodie and Binga, Binga is the Alpha. I actually won't let Binga groom me, unless she is in a REALLY good, non-confrontational mood. And that happens about once a year.

Princess is the only licker here! And efurrybody likes it. Or at least pretends to.

That's good information. Ling is a licker and doesn't like to be licked (though Cosmo manages to plant some licks before she runs off). Hmmm...NOW we know why.

Simba makes me clean him allllllll the time. Every since I got here as a ickle kitty he has made me do that. He said that if I wanted to stay I had to clean his ears out!!! They were gross, but I wanted to stay so much I just closed my eyes and did it, yak. He does sometimes clean me though, i've kinda insisted he does hee he :)xx

The Meezers or Billy said...

we does that too - howefur Billy usually licks the most, and Sammy the least.

Dat is interesting information.... Mom is pretty sure Tommy is the head mancat here, but he does let Tim give him a good wash up sometimes...maybe that is a brother thing. :)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Sounds like me and Ichiro... We both lick and take licks (although neither of us really likes the latter). Gemini does not take licks at all. I think she must be the leader!

The Island Cats said...

Wally is the licker in this house. I am rarely the licker...but I am the lickee for Wally and sometimes Zoey. I'm the cleanest one here!!

Scout has really been trying to take over from Shaggy, but Shaggy is having none of that!
