what does it mean when a baby boy cat tries to suck his little baby sister cats nipples

Answer by Kate

Hi well it just instinct and memory from suckling from his mother. Try not to let him do it too often as it could cause the female cat some hair loss or soreness in that area.

Your kittens need to get used to drinking from saucers etc, but if they are still very youg then you may have to feed them yourself with bottles etc.

Please see my kitten care pages, there is lots of information about at what agte a kitten should be weaned etc here is the first page and the others are on the menu on the top right hand corner of that page.

best wishes Kate
