This is Actually a Thing & People Are Actually Buying it. June 10 2016, 0 Comments
Many cat owners know what it's like to just want your cat to love you. While most of our efforts go unnoticed, we like to think our cats are happy. This group of people took the idea of 'bonding' with your cat quite literally and we are unsure if it should be applauded or if it is just plain strange. So we will just let you decide youself.
The idea behind the Licki Brush is that cat grooming is a “form of social bonding” from which humans are left out... normally. But this product solves that issue, by allowing you to 'lick' your cat and therefore they feel more bonded with you.
Now while the idea technically makes sense, cats lick themselves and each other quite frequently. Watching the videos of people doing this to cats is just too entertaining to ignore. Also the question of if the cats think its legit or not comes to mind, I mean who has a tongue that large? Cats are pretty smart, I am sure they are on to us.
Not sure how this would work? There are instructions !
"Gently grasp Licki’s bite portion with your teeth, slowly approach your cat when she is sleeping or in an otherwise pleasant mood, and ease into the soothing and mutually beneficial licking behavior of cats. Don’t be surprised if your cat licks you back." -Kickstarter Licki Brush instructions.
If you have tried and/or own this product please post a comment below and let us know what you think! Maybe we will give it a try.
But for now, maybe try something a little more rewarding for yourself and your Instagram posts and get your cat a little costume.
