Its like brushing their coats, some can't get enough.
Kate, what sort of brush are you using? A normal toothbrush or a finger brush?
My vet has advised to brush my kittens' teeth but he said their mouths were a bit small for a finger brush and advised me to stick some toothpaste on my finger and to smooth it on their teeth...
I was also thinking about getting some treats which supposedly are good for helping keep kitten teeth clean but not sure whether they are any food or not
