So my 5 mo old baby has a special habit. Whenever he's tired and on my lap and especially when I'm trying to go to sleep, he comes up and licks at my face/ears/nose/wherever and then gently bites. It's exactly how he would groom another cat. I thought at first he might be trying to nurse on me, but it seems different. Anyway, I know this kind of behavior is common in cats taken away from their mother at an early age, which he was. He was a feral kitten and his momma left him and his siblings at about 4-5wks. How do I make it stop!? I've tried ignoring him, making him get down, popping his little nose. Everything. Nothing helps. And if I lock him out of the room, he just scratches at the door. Anybody have a similar experience, and maybe some advice?
