Hello all.

This is about my male Achoo and I need to know if this is normal is it a concern. First of all I don't use lotions or perfume now since I work from home so there isn't anything on my skin (such as hands arms and so on) unless I dropped food or something without knowing lol. So Achoo is my baby he gives me kisses/licks on my cheek but I also notice that now that they are pretty much bonded I don't hear them crab unless a stranger is near, but he also licks me alot. I can understand when I reach in with their food but when we are like just hanging out and bonding he will crawl on me he will lick my arm and sometimes they are bra babies so he will lick on my chest area. Occasionally i get the nips but never bite bite. So should I be worried or is this normal?

He is grooming you, this is a sign that he has accepted you as one of his colony.

My fatboy, Tucker, does this to me all the time and he is noisy about it. Doing happy clicks that whole time he is cleaning.

Like a clicking noise? Kinda like really quiet popping? That's good, grooming you makes him happy.
