Why do cats have rough tongues?

The tongues of cats, big (lions) and small, are like sandpaper. They have tough bits of flesh or papillae, which stick up from the middle of the tongue. They function like the bristles of a hairbrush. When the cat licks its coat, the papillae remove dust, dirt and loose hair. The papillae can even scrape meat from a bone.
