An affectionate cat added a little twist to the old adage that if you scratch his back, he will lick your beard.

As Lee Pancake used a brush on his pet moggy Odin at home in Orlando, Florida, on July 18, the pleased pet returned the favour.

Looking up at Lee, Odin uses his tongue to lick against his beard while purring away.

Owner Madison said: “This is a daily occurrence.

“He will actually straddle Lee on the couch when he gets home from work and groom his beard.

“Funny thing is, he won’t groom himself, which is why he has a little spa day once a week.”
