GEORGE is about 9 weeks old and we've had him about 3 weeks now. He was pulled from his mother during the first few weeks and tossed on the side of the highway with his sister. They were found by a cyclist and were quarantined and nursed to health and we graciously accepted him as our own. About 2 weeks ago he started sucking like crazy because he feels safe and secure. The only problem is that he does it every time he starts purring, usually when is getting sleepy. I don't mind the paw kneeding so much, but the sucking on the neck and face can be quite excessive. I'm concerned that this will turn into a life-time habit and I'd like to try and ween him off sucking on people. The paw kneeding can stay. I loved everyone's pictures and thought I'd submit my own for your enjoyment. Everyone... meet GEORGE...
