Hi, cat lovers!

I am a new cat owner to my little cupcake. She is 13 1/2 weeks old. We've had her for almost 2 weeks. The first few nights she would meow all night, now she's mostly quiet at night. She now prefers to sleep in my . She loves to play! She's clouds of fun. She has a huge appetite. She also like to nurse on blankets, never seen a cat do this. Is that normal? I enjoy having her and look forward to her growing up being a part of our family.

Welcome to TCS! We’re glad to have you here! Cupcake is absolutely gorgeous! Is she a Bengal? Regarding your question about nursing the blanket, it’s probably best if you can start a thread in our Cat Behavior forum, so that you can get a pool of answers from people familiar with that topic. Here’s an article to get you started: Wool Sucking Cats

Welcome to The Cat Site. Your little Cupcake is deliciously beautiful. :redheartpump:

I have a cat that loves to suck on either a wool or fleece blanket. It does not seem to harm him, though I try to discourage him. :dunno:

Perfectly normal to knead and nurse on things, it brings comfort and security. MOST cats do it at times. Beautiful little girl! She looks mischievous!

Welcome to you AND to Cupcake! Yep, the nursing is very common. Sometimes blankets, sometimes body parts. Hekitty prefers the inside of my right elbow (which now looks slightly diseased from all the kneading). I think she'll outgrow it, myself, she's only ten years old...
