It is. Trixie is a compulsive licker. Left unchecked, there are times she will lick her paw to the point of licking all the hair off one little spot. So we keep an eye (and ear, she's a loud licker) on her. Trixie is also a burrowing creature. She loves to be under blankets and pillows. Usually, if I catch her paw licking under the covers, I tell her stop and she does. However, if she doesn't stop licking her paw, I tell her that she "has lost head under the covers privileges," and reposition the blanket like this. It's the punishment, and she knows it.
