I don't know if anyone else has had this experience, but my male cat Merlin is really into it.

He has the habit of getting on top of cabinets, refrigerator or my dresser hutch and laying in wait for me to come by. When this happens, he reaches out one paw to catch my head and draw it closers to him. He then proceeds to groom me with his complete attention on the job. He will even use both feet if I try to leave.

I have not seen this behavior from other cats, certainly not my other cats.

Anyone else had this (pleasant) experience?

That sounds cute! I've never had that experience, but it's probably because I'm too short. However, when I'm reading a book in my favorite chair, one of my cats will start licking my hand and if I try to move it, she'll wrap one (or both!) front paw(s) around my hand to keep it in place until she's finished. She's very thorough; she licks between my fingers and everything. Then I have to dislodge her so I can get up and wash the cat slobber off! Yuck.
