Well, I just thought I'd share this...Roxie hasn't ever licked me, except for when I'm giving her baby food or something on my finger. However, I was telling her goodnight earlier when I was leaving Kim's house, and I put my lips up to the cage where she was, and she licked my lips! Haha it was just really funny...and I had just eaten...but I'd like to think it's just because she loves me so much.
all my girls love to lick my fingers and if i put my face up to the bars, they usually lick my nose too. picasso goes a little crazy though and shoves her whole schnozzle into my nostrils to clean them too. tickles like crazy, lol.
Artemis also licks my nostrils... it's kinda gross but cute at the same time! Sometimes he'll just snuffle around in my nose and just stay there with his muzzle in my nostril for a minute. It's adorable! He also licks my hand and face, esp. when they're wet.
Da Vinci doesn't lick my hands or feet but my arms and I googled why does my rat lick me and it came up that since he doesn't have a cage friend that he is grooming me and when they do this it means they are very bonded to you. I thought that was really cute because I just love my baby I don't know what I would do without him.
Boris licks my hands from time to time. Sometimes when i stick my fingers through the cage bars, but most of the times, when he's grooming himself and my hand is near he grabs my fingers and licks away.
He'll also stick his nose in my ears when sitting on my shoulder.
If I make the kiss sound Noah will climb up and kiss me on the lips. I never trained him to do that. I don't think I could train him to do anything. He is too smart for his own good. He puts the rat in brat.
My boys don't usually lick while out of their cage. They are too busy running around inside my sweatshirt or hanging out in my hood. Sometimes they stick their heads inside my ear and sniff as loud as they possibly can.
They do, however, lick me when I stick my fingers in their cage (which I probably shouldn't do). Their cage is in my walkway, and I can't walk by without spending a minute greeting them, so I am sticking my fingers in their cage constantly. After a few licks, they like to nuzzle my fingers with their heads. It is SO precious.
While they are out, they usually just cruise around and enjoy themselves, though.
My Amazon parrot, on the other hand, likes to groom my ear while she sits on my shoulder. It makes me nervous due to the power of her beak, but it is cute. And I NEVER put my fingers in her cage! 8O
