My 3 and a half month old male kitten likes to suck on the sheets like its his mom.. and try to get milk outta it. as cute as it might be i was wondering if this is normal and when it will pass.

This is a sign of your kitten being weaned too early. I'm not sure when it will pass- my one year old cat only recently stopped sucking on this one blanket. You can actually buy pillows online that have a fake cat nipple on it for cats to suckle. I wouldn't discourage it though because it is a comforting action. Don't try to give him a pacifier either bc he might eat it or hurt himself. Just wash your sheets some more ;)

Lol. Unless they stop soon this habit will continue FOREVER. My one year was never weaned by us but by the mother cat and he still does this when we pet him on the bed. It's cute at first until you roll over in the middle of the night and realize your blanket is covered in kitty drool.

I have raised many cats. the kittens that have been taken away from their mothers just a little to soon will find things to nurse on to feel that feeling of comfort. I had one that did that its entire life.

My kitten is about 6 months old and he does that.

It's not a problem...

You never know if it will or not, it's just part of your cats personality.

my catstill does it and shes 2years. it advise they have been taken away to youthful from there mothers and that they complement the sheet as her nipple. as for combating i dont understand. get some apple spray and spray the section she starts to suck. you could buythat at petsmart.
