Is there any way to stop a cat from kneading on a person and sucking on that person's clothing? My 82 year old mother took in a kitten, Benji, when he was about 5 weeks old (I know this was young, but his mom was feral, etc and this has alot to do with why he's exhibiting this behavior,so I know all that...) Anyway, she loves this little guy who is now around 4 months old, but she absoltely HATES that he will knead her and suck on her shirt. I keep telling her it's a comfort to him, etc., but she doesn't like it. Is there anyway to deter this behavior? He also gets pretty nutty and attacks her legs when he wants to play. He's the only cat in the house, and I told her he's BORED. I highly doubt she'd adopt another cat to keep him company. I was wondering if Feliway would help with the kneading/sucking behavior?
