Customer Question

Why does my cat give little love bites on my chin when she lays on top of me and gets scratched?

Simply because the scratching you are giving her feels good to her. Some cats will lick or nibble on them self when they are scratched or petted- others will do it to whomever is doing it to them. It is just because it feels good to her and she is returning the favor.
