|Sherpa bites. It's odd...he spends hours sitting contentedly in my lap each night while I'm at the computer. He purrs and purrs. Then he'll reach up and put his teeth on my chin. Or my arm. Or my cheek. Sometimes he just sets them there, sometimes he'll clamp down on me. Never hard enough to draw blood, but hard enough to make me uncomfortable.
Any ideas why he does this? I mean, I guess it's not the worst thing ever (except that his breath is never exactly rosy), but I'm curious as to what's going through his mind. He doesn't seem agitated or annoyed, he's relaxed and purring with a relaxed tail when he bites.
I can even tell when its about to happen sometimes. Since my husband pushes Sherpa's face away when he bites, he'll start to crane his neck towards my chin and then flinch like his face was pushed. He'll repeat that a couple of times, then bite.
