hello everyone.

i am new to this board, and just introduced my 14-week old kitten casper. he is really fantastic, except he has one issue. he wants to suckle on me when i am sleeping! i've been trying to wear him out before bed, hoping he'll stay asleep, but he wakes me up trying to suckle on my face, lips, chin, eyes, neck, hands... i woke up yesterday morning with two tiny kitten hickies. i bought him a pillow pet, because he showed a lot of interest in sleeping and suckling on my brother's pillow pet. casper always sleeps as close to me as possible, and so i have just added the pillow pet as an additional pillow in my bed. last night he didn't go for it... any suggestions on what i can do about this behavior?

p.s. i was wondering if this behavior could be related to the fact that he was an orphaned kitten and bottle fed since he was only a few days old?
