    Posted: 19 Sep 2008 at 5:14am

I have a new kitten and she is 8 or 9 weeks old and she needs a pacifier.  I have never had a cat before and I love this one but she keeps wanting to suckle me.  She wakes me up early in the morning by trying to suck my earlobe.  Yes I have let her suckle my breast 3 times because it comforts her and makes her calm and fall asleep.

Is this safe?  It is starting to hurt and makes me feel like a idiot for letting her do it.  Can I find a pacifier for her at a pet store?
Someone please help?

Please don't let your kitty suckle your breast. Not a very wise idea. There is a product that you can buy for kitties who suckle, but honestly, when i reviewed it, none of my kittens wanted anything to do with it.
 
Instead, do down to the local pet store or pet supply and find a soft dog toy, one that is filled with squishy material. Buy that and give it to kitty as a substitute for your flesh.

than you for your comment and i will try it.  i really hope that it works.  i have stopped letting her suckle my breast (I stopped when I wrote this)  But now she is trying to suck my ear lobes.  But the funny thing is is that she only does it when she wants to take a nap.  I tried buying a bottle for newborn orphans but i think the nipple was to hard.  Does anyone know if they make a pacifier or if a regular baby bottle that has a soft nipple will work?  I am open to any suggestions. 
I just makes me sad to see her like that cause I think she may have been taken from her momma to soon and she is missing that closeness that she feels when she is nursing.
Thank You
