Hi! My 6 year old pig Fibi has been constantly licking me the past few months. I've had her out for lap time, been feeding her in her cage, and petting her in her cage and whenever she can she licks me! Any idea why?
I like to think that piggie licking is a sign of affection, too. But sometimes I think it is nervousness. One of my more nervous piggies will lick my face when I pick her up. Yet her much less nervous sister does the same thing! Sometimes it seems like, between them, they'll lick me to death!
One of mine likes to obsessively lick our hands as well, and will even lick our face if we put our face down to her level. Some pigs do it more than others. I suspect it is either affection/grooming or the fact that our skin may taste salty, which they may like. My kids say they are 'piggy kisses.'
I call this piggy kisses , my two girls kiss me all the time, although really its more likely that they like the taste of our skin. my stumpy also does this when she wants to let me know its wee wee time
