People have speculated as to what was the cause of the strange behavior. Some thought that deer were being motherly while others said the cat's fur is a salty treat as it can contain dandruff that the deer view as a natural salt lick.
One person commented, “Deer, like most herbivores, require salt intake to help break down grasses, etc. consisting in their natural diet. Cats secrete salt naturally through their skin & collect it on their fur via salt trapped in the air moisture itself, hence free salt lick.”
