Hi!
My 7 month old kitten Sasha has recently developed a very strange (but cute) behavior. I have this blanket that i sleep with everynight, and it smells very much like my perfume. Well, whenever i am not at home, my boyfriend tells me that Sasha actually sucks on this blanket, and kneads it as she would on a mommy kitty. Does this mean that she has separation anxiety, or is she just a funny cat :wink: . Should i be worried about this?
thanks, Jamie

Often a cat who didn't have enough time with mother will become a wool sucker. I also think there are some cats who just love to do it. It gives them comfort to knead the blanket the way they kneaded mother cats timmy! :)

My cat does that too!!! I've caught her recently doing that to my toddlers baby blanket which she sleeps with all the time, and her stuffed carebear pillow. It really is a cute habit. I think she just likes doing it, becuase most of the time my toddler is sitting right next to her.
