Cat licks food
Thank you for the information I have a Himalayan cat that lip smacks.. Sometimes he likes raw chicken chop meat.. I took him to the vet twice for this.. I know cats get exposed to this especially if their outdoor cats.. One doctor said he might have asthma or allergies.. I am in a similar situation Trish, and though I cannot give you an answer that is based on education I can tell you where I'm at and where I'm headed with my cat.

How to Feed a Fussy Cat: Tips & Advice | Purina
Cats are fastidious animals, and they groom themselves several times a day. Yet you may have always wondered why cats lick their front feet after every meal. Even though they have not touched any food with their feet, all cats tend to do this. Food-related grooming may be a throwback to a cat's live prey hunting rituals in the wild. Cats are often cleaner than the food they eat, especially the wet food products that can splatter tiny particles and leave oils and food smells around the mouth, in the whiskers, and on the face or even the front legs. To a cat, these yucky things just don't belong there and must be removed! Cats clean themselves with their tongues, which have rough surfaces that can "comb" and separate each hair while also distributing saliva to loosen particles of dirt.
