Post Lord Butterboo suckles on everyone

One of my cats, Lord Butterboo, suckles on blankets, clothing, and furniture like he's trying to get milk from them. He's about 7 months old now and he does it all the time. Anytime that I'm outside he's probably standing beside me suckling on the bottom on my pants. It's a cute habit! I just wonder why he still does it whenever he's as old as he is

Cats who do this were probably weaned too early from their mothers.

G doesn't really suckle, but he certainly headbutts all over my face--eyes, nose, ears, especially and drools profusely as he purrs up a storm. Affectionate? Yes. Lovable? Yes. Gross, too. Lots of saliva drops all over me, with cat hair all over my face. Very itchy now, lol.

Krissy, I don't know how you can stand all that drool. Blech. My ears get soooo wet when G's does this, I can't tolerate his habit very long. And he tends to do this several times a day if I'm at home! :O

Well, it has to be sitting up so the drool runs down my neck and doesnt puddle IN my actual ear. Try explaining *THAT* ear infection to the dr.....

I really don't let him do it very often, he tries multiple times a day. For me it's the best gage of how he's feeling. If he's off his food and seeming listless but starts drooling/purring/nursing when I offer him an earlobe its' all good. He's just pissy about something. If he turns down the ear.... I call the vet.
