When cats are affectionate around their owners, they often enjoy licking their owners face or hands. So when Colton Carlyle’s cat licked his nose, he decided that he should try to lick the cat back as an equal sign of affection.

Curiously, the cat backed away and started howling. Apparently licking is something the cat believes should go in only one direction. Perhaps he idea of getting human saliva and germs all over it made the cat squeamish so it likely ran to eat some grass and drink out of the toilet to avoid getting contaminated by human germs.
