My friend's cat licks unframed photos why is she doing this?... thanks for the question. This might sound a bit weird but I think it is not. It is probably one of two things. Either the print is manufactured with a material or processed with a chemical that simply tastes nice to a cat or your friend's cat is doing scent exchange and licking the smell of your friend from the photo after she or he has touched it.
Cats lick their human companions quite a lot. This is tasting the scent of the person to read their scent signals to allow them to feel more at home.
You can see the same thing when we stroke our cat. Sometimes they lick the area stroked thus tasting us by licking up the very faint scent that we have deposited on their fur.
A cat has a much more refined sense of smell than us.
