Hi, I will tell you a little about us. My husband and I and our two children went to visit the grandparents one afternoon. (They own a little country store). On the way out, we heard a "meow" "meow". Grandma came out and told us that someone had dropped this kitten off and now it was hiding behind the icebox and wouldn't come out.
My husband coaxed it out with a piece of bread. Oh she was so tiny.
After some research, we have gathered that when ever she was taken away from her mother, she couldn't have been at the 6wk mark yet. She was only 3 to 5 wks old when we found her.
We have welcomed her into our family. My husband made her a hideout/scratching post out of some old crates and some pieces of carpet.
We have taken her to get her immunizations and boosters.
There is one odd thing about her that I have never noticed any other cat to do and I was wondering if it had anything to do with the fact that she was taken away from her mother at such an early age and didn't go through the weening stage?
She will crawl up in our laps and she suckles our clothes. Doing her paws back and forth just as if she were nursing on her mother. Kwim?
Is this common and will she ever grow out of it?
Thank You for letting me post this long.
