Come on, you know you’ve thought to yourself, “I wonder if there’s a way to lick my cat and groom him or her at the same time?

WHY WOULD I EVER HAVE THOUGHT THAT.

I assume wondering this is one of the symptoms of that disease you get from cleaning cats' litter boxes?

I...I am a committed cat lover/owner and I have never ever thought this. I have thought about putting them in outfits, writing operas about them, stage musicals too, and dropped stupid money on toys and food and hand woven felt caves they refuse to fucking use, but I have never wanted to lick my cat.

My cat gets an EIGHTY DOLLAR HAIRCUT every month and it has never crossed my mind that I might want to lick her.

Is it a good haircut? Is the salon anywhere near the Junction? Because, man, if I'm going to pay that kind of money for a haircut, I need a stylist who knows what "angled bob, longer in the front" means WHY YES, I'M SUBTWEETING A CERTAIN ESTABLISHMENT ON DUNDAS #bitter

Is there a word for something that isn't actually NSFW but feels like it should be, and you're not sure why? The video in this post feels like that.

I am entirely on board with the RTFA before commenting concept, but I can't quite bring myself to click. I am afraid I will not be able to unsee.

She looks absolutely FETCHING and our stylist does serve the Junction, as it turns out!

Though I am quite happy to do this, licking either directly or with what appears to be a sex toy that's been run over by a steam engine is not an option in the Wordshore household thank you very much.

One of my cats is a Bond Villain cat. She wants to sit on your lap being mostly ignored, and hates being pet too vigorously, or your face getting too close to her.

My other cat loves to wake me up by grooming my hair. He'll headbutt me so that he's rubbed his whiskers on me, and if I had whiskers, he'd feel equally nuzzled. To him, I am a giant malformed cat.

I have no doubt in my mind that he wants this.

One of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged under their giant gross fake tongues, or why.

I have kind of a complimentary problem, we have a new puppy, and his first instinct when he approaches anything is to lick it. He almost got himself shocked by an electrical socket once, good thing it was wired to a switch and was off. We have no idea how to train him to smell, not lick when he approaches something.

Do you stick your own tongue into it? Bite down on the end of it? Jam it in your mouth and pray it stays put?

A cat's tongue is essentially covered in hundreds of tiny cats claws.

So not exactly 'ribbed for her pleasure' country.

As are their cocks. But please no-one tell that to the people who made this abomination.

Does it double as a bite guard thingy to prevent grinding your teeth while you sleep? Covered by insurance-- win!

I've licked my cat back lots of times. I don't know if I'd want to put a weird spiky rubber thing on my tongue first, though.

But what happens if the cat really enjoys it and wants to, well, take things to the next level/base?

Folks, there's a reason why cat-keeping humans have fingers.

In fact, it's speculated that cats first started spending time close to humans not because of being fed (being within range of their rodent-attracting granaries would have sufficed) but because of the humans having fingers and, in some cases, a tendency to stroke friendly-looking cats.

In any case: this product doesn't fill any actual unmet needs.

We all know that things like this are posted just to provide an excuse for Mefites to talk about their cats. And sex toys.

Wait, this is one hell of a weird thread.

My cats have a six foot tall cat tree, endless toys, treats, my entire apartment and everything in it (including me) at their disposal. Before I consider this they need to learn how to make me coffee.

Okay I can't believe I am now the cat lady that is even weirder than the other cat people of metafilter... I once licked my cat's neck in an attempt to kiss/nuzzle/groom her. The taste and sensation was vile. So yeah I would buy this. *
