View Full Version : Licking things

Why do they do it exactly?

I'm not talking about grooming humans or other buns, but licking objects.

For example, Bella has a favourite corner in her room. It's where her litter tray is. Quite often I'll go downstairs to find her sat there licking the wall. Sometimes she only does this a few times, sometimes she literally does it for ages.

Boris used to lick furniture etc. when he free ranged in the living room.

I can understand that a rug might be nice to "groom" as they're nice and soft, but why furniture? Why walls? :lol: Does anyone else's bun do this?

I have no idea but I always assumed it must be to do with texture, I thought it might be comforting. Or maybe your wall tastes of something nice! :lol: I've had several buns who licked jeans on and off the body which I'd put money on being a 'this feels nice' thing.

Dylan likes to lick the floor.. I've also caught him licking the window before :roll:

Like everyone else I have absolutely no idea why! Must just be a little quirk :lol:
