    Default Cat Suckling on Bella?!

    I came home from school today to see my new kitty, scotty, suckling on Bella! hes only about 8-9 wks, but its really weird! how do i fix it? I just pulled him off her again. I have noticed he only goes for one teat, not all of them.

    Does Bella lick around her teats/that area often?

    If not, I'd be putting something on them to deter the kitten, Boxerini.

    My feelings are it is just comfort. I wouldn't be concerned as I feel the dog will push away if she wants. I once did have a bitch have a phantom pregnancy then raise an abandoned litter of kittens, milk and all.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Oh. That's that idea out then.
    Hopefully as the kitten gets older he/she will stop.
    If you don't want this happening, try clapping your hands loudly and swiftly when kitten does it.

    When we first got one of my cats and he was a kitten he used to do this to one of the older cats. He eventually just grew out of it.

    Leave it be. The kittens did this to rufus and Einstein still does. Rufus let's him know when he is getting too rough or reaching an...um...uncomfortable...body part. They're nipplE mad. I've had some near misses when sleeping nude on hot nights. ATM I can hear a kitten purring and massaging a cat bed. It's a comfort thing
