I got Uriah from the local shelter about 3 weeks ago. When I first got her home she was fresh out of surgery the day before so still heavily medicated. She kneeded her paws on me the first few nights which is to be expected with kittens and cats, I know. But 2 nights ago I woke up to my shirt lifted and a cat sucking on my stomach. The only thing the shelter had on her history was that she was found outside and had been at the shelter for about a week. Does anyone know why an older kitten would still be trying to nurse? Also, is this a habit that will go away on its own or is it a habit I should break? Any suggestions would be more than welcome. And thanks to everyone in advance.
