Dear catster community,
I have two cats. One of the is a teenage kitten of almost 6 months old and she periodically suckles on the older cat. The older cat definitely cannot produce milk, so, as far as i understand, the suckling behavior of the smaller cat can be explained as a that she needs a pacifier and was not properly weaned. After suckling, the kitten only licks the food and doesn't chew it. I guess, expecting liquid food instead.
I was wondering whether someone can advise on the problem. Does that behavior stops after neutering? I bought taste deterrent that I wanted to put on the older cat, but that might prevent her from cleaning herself...
