(KO) "Pick me up, Mama. I got the Big Lonesomes. I need cuddles. And perhaps some crunchies". I'm a sucker for this stuff. My two cats play me daily to get their way. And I fall for it every time. This kitten would own me.
Licking - If your cat is grooming you, it means they see you as part of their family, and is showing love for you. Kittens mostly, while adult cat rarely bestow their owners with licks. *MY adult cat grooms me almost every day.
