my cat has a very hot tongue

I have a 11 year old tom cat who is very loving but shy. recently He has picked up a habit of licking everyone he comes in contact with and I have noticed that the temperture of his tongue is really Hot! I have not taken his temp and otherwise he seems fine. eating well, sleeping well, but has started becoming more of a homebody then ever. He was always an outdoor cat who enjoys hunting and spent a lot of his time outdoors. I wonder if his behavior is relevant to his age and if the temp of his tongue indicates something I might not be aware of.

hi there im in jersey too if its new jersey lol

one way to see if a cat is too hot is fell his ears if they are always warm it may be small fever usually ears are a bit cooler couse that the way the get rid of heat . I dont knoe when your last checkup was but after 9 yrs or so i usually have me animals see the vet every 6-9 months

licking evrything cant be very safe maybe a dietary deficincy?

ANy way welcome to the board

He is probably fine, but the licking would bother me if it is new behaviour. Worth a vet visit.
