She finds it amusing but a little too much which is why she moves away from the suckling. I can understand it although from the cat’s perspective it will be puzzling as he thinks he is at his mother’s breast feeding. So why is mom pulling away?

    30 years ago I found a sick and hungry tiny black and white kitten who grew up suckling my ear lobe. He’d wake me up at night sucking, lol. He did it his whole life, nothing I did made him stop.
