When I am holding my rabbit, stroking it, gromming it or holding it in general it sometimes starts to lick me, does anyone no why it would???

Its cause he loves you! C: When your bun feels really close to you, he licks you... Its kinda like when bonded bunnys go up to eachother and start grooming- its a sign of love and friend ship ^^
LOL, it can get a lil annoying some times tho... like if they closest lickable object is something kinda nasty, or if they star licking your floor xD Its hard to even touch my rabbit Smudge without him licking you. Its like some sorta OCD!

My rabbit licks EVERYTHING (including carpet). But her left paw most of the times.

Flash was a serious licker when he first moved in, but he hasn't done it much lately. He used to lick me, the floor, the furniture, ...

Squirrely, if your bunny is licking one particular part of herself a lot, it's probably just because she's trying to get clean. Maybe she stepped in something. Remember, they clean themselves with their tongues.
