I have a 5 month old kitten and she just started suckling on her own teats. I have heard of kittens suckling on objects such as blankets, or their own tails if they were not weaned. But this girl was fully weaned from her mother before I picked her out at the Humane Society. And I've had her for over a month and as far as I can tell she just started doing it a few days ago. I should add, that she's done it when she's curled up in my lap or next to me in bed. Should I let her do it? Or give her some object as a pacifier? Help!
