Default Anointing with my hair

So I was having play time with Freya, letting her run around my room, an I was down on her level, she then starting chewing on my hair an anointing her self after eating my hair. I don't use any hair gel or anything besides shampoo, should I not let her do that agian if it happens? Or should I take it as sign she's warming up to me?

You probably shouldn't let her chew/eat it...she could choke on it.

I agree with MochiAndMe. But at the same time, you can take it as a sign that she's warming up. Just steer her towards something else to anoint with where she can't eat it or get tangled in it.

Once in a while Sophie will anoint with my hair. She bites and tugs and yanks and really gets into it. Then she'll do a big anointing. I've never been particularly worried about it. She isn't trying to eat it, but just wants to get a good sampling.

She doesn't anoint very often, and with most things once or twice seems to give her a lifetime 'inoculation'. Every few months, though, she gets a booster shot with my hair. It's pretty funny and she isn't actually eating it, so not especially concerned.

Erizo, I agree with you, it is pretty funny, she got her whole body into pulling at it.
