If she is licking her genital area, she is most likely cleaning herself. It is a normal behavior that keeps those areas clean and prevents urinary tract infections and other disease and irritation. If you notice she is licking herself a lot, it may be a sign that something is wrong, such as infection or heat in females that have not been spayed.
