Default How affectionate is your cat?

I forgot to give examples of affection from my own cat.

I guess the only evidence left of affection from my cat, is sometimes when
I put my face or hand near her face, she will sometimes lick it. She knows
not to lick my eyes, mouth, or ears. Although, I sometimes wonder if it is
coincidental, considering she is grooming herself at the time. So maybe
her licking my nose means she wants some alone time?

I've come to that conclusion with mine: even though they lick each other
they rarely lick me unless they want me to stop petting them (except the
younger ones which are "returning the favour" to my unprotected skin's
dismay)

I've got one at the moment that likes to suckle earlobes. I suspect
she was taken from her mother too young - I reckon she was only about
6 weeks when she came into my care (far too young IMO). Ever since
then she's gone for anyone's earlobes that will let her suckle. Two
years on and she's still doing it. She's otherwise healthy. happy and
content, but when she gets a lobe she goes off in a dizzy purring haze
of pleasure. Funny cat. I've never known it before - she doesn't try
to suck on anything else (I've heard of oriental breeds who like
wool), just earlobes!

While I often get the impression that most of my cats think of me as a
big boob, none have actually gone so far as to try to prove it.

We had an Abyssinian like that once, and we knew from the breeder
he had been taken from his mother a bit on the early side. He grew
out of the specific earlobe thing after about two years, but remained
very oral to the end of his days.

I had two fosters (now permanent) that did that, I figured it made them
secure so may as well let them do it. (They were orphaned at young ages so
didn't really get a chance to satisfy that urge). They are both 8 months
old and are pretty much through with sucking on earlobes, although every
once in a while they still do. Try having to sucking on your ears at a
time - gets awful warm!
