"Licked" in context

Licking is something that most animals do. We humans instinctively lick our lips to moisten them, something cats and dogs do to coat objects with their saliva in order to taste them. Our tongues have taste buds that allow us to detect the flavor of food. We usually lick something to determine if it is sweet, salty, sour, or bitter. However, it's not just an instinctive motion. It can also be used as a way to show affection or as part of a grooming routine.

When we think of animals licking, we usually think of a cat or dog licking its fur. This serves a few purposes.
