    aww you should feel blessed a cats ultimate display of affection is to groom or lick you, you are accepted and loved. My kitten gizmo loves to lick the tip of my nose ....

    My 5 year old cat, Lizzie, also can't "hold her likker". She doesn't really "headbonk" or show affection in any other way but by licking. But I do know that this can be annoying. What you can do when she starts this is just move her away from you and walk away. This is what I do with Lizzie. I try to distract her with a toy or some grooming time. She seems to 'get the message" that mom doesn't really want to be licked and since I've been doing that, she doesn't lick me as much.
