My cat is sooo cute, but I do have a question. Why does he like chewing on my hair? —Donna Bates
It does seem like a weird thing to do, but chewing on your hair makes sense to your cat. In fact, if you were a cat instead of a human he’d probably lick your fur. Cats groom each other in order to bond and show affection. Your pet thinks you’re a cool cat, so take that as a compliment. Unless your cat is obsessive about grooming your head, which could indicate he’s stressed out and trying to self-soothe, you don’t have anything to worry about. Fortunately, it’s now winter and wearing a wooly cap around the house will keep you warm and protect your hair from cat mouths. Maybe he’d like a cat roommate to hang out with (if he doesn’t already have one) or a stuffed, catnip-infused toy for redirecting his affection.
