We have never experienced a cat that bathes us. Once, we had a cat that drooled on us - we were told she did that when she's content, but never one that cleaned us. Last night was the first night Noodle did not give me a facial, even tho we slept face to face. She did, however, bath her brother's face - that was very darling. He sat still for it, or at least didn't seem to mind. Now, she is bathing Dave.
Although she's cute and all, her tongue is prickly, so her baths hurt on particular areas like the forehead and cheeks. At times she'll hold down your face to finish her bath. She's a woman on a mission.
