Draco has decided that if I'm eating then he wants to try it. Not in a normal way of trying the food in my hand but licking my lip to have a taste.

Please excuse the state I look in the video. It had been a very long day lol

That is cute! I hope he's not expecting you to regurgitate food for him like they do for their chicks! LOL Bennie likes to share my food, but from my plate or bowl, in the case of "Cheerios", one of his favorites.

He's only just started doing it. As soon as he sees me put food in my mouth he's there licking me. He's started nibbling in my nose and down my ear too. He cleans me rather than his lady friend. He just lets her scratch his head n when she wants on back he bites her lol but me he will sit and nibble on me for 10-30 mins at a time. X

Haha. He will probably be doing that soon. X

Adorable! Joey doesn't do that, but only investigates to the point of nearly falling off the back of the couch onto me, to see what I am eating. He only does it with a bowl and spoon, never a plate and fork or a bowl and fork. Maybe because we rarely sit back on the couch to eat actual meals, so he gets less chances to see a plate and fork?

My boy does it too, in particular with pizza. He has an incredible good nose for pizza and literally darts through the room to land on my chest and steal pizza from my mouth.
Last time in particular he was so annoying I could hardly eat my pizza...

Today Joey decided to try to fly into my face to steal a cracker, but he didn't get it. It was comical because he was only a foot from my face, sitting on the back of the couch, but flew a few feet away and back to get there from a better angle.

He'd had a very tiny bit of pretzel cracker last night, so I wouldn't allow him any today. If it wasn't for the salt I'd let him have them more often, but I only give him the the tiniest bit every couple of weeks.

I suppose I need to find him some unsalted ones so he can have them more often. Usually I can distract him with pellets, but today was one of his persistent days.

Here in Australia there are flies in summer and he really reminds me of a fly with his persistence in wanting to get on and into my mouth sometimes.
