Default could this be affection???

Hi there,

My beautiful Alfie who loves to come sit on my shoulder and climb all over my head including my glasses (makes it a bit difficult to see) has started to what I describe as pinching my neck. Its not a bite but more like getting a little bit of skin and squeezing it. It feels like little needle pricks and leaves a mark that looks like a rash. This behaviour has only been happening in the last week or so. Im not sure of how to handle this behaviour. Any advice would be muchly appreciated.

I would say your sweet boy is actually trying to preen you, so yes it is a sign of affection and that he has bonded to you.
