  • HA!HA!HA!HA!Cute! It's not hurting anything, just leave it! Your kitty was probably not weaned soon enough!

  • You see this kind of thing in news clips. I've never heard of the milk hurting the kitten. The mother dog will wean the kitty in time.

  • Let them. There is no danger. They will be good friends this way. If the dog is becoming bothered, she'll put a quick end to it.

  • aw that's sweet. i'd just let them do it. like ECODANI says if the dog doesnt like it she'll make the kitten stop.

  • It sounds like he was weaned to soon. How old was he when you got rid of the mom? This is actually pretty commin. My aunt constantly has kittens iin her home. The strays seem to think that her house is the best place to give birth. Anyway, years ago she had this lab that looked out for the kittens and those kittens would do the same thing even though Ben was a boy and there was no way he could lactate. The moms were still there of course and the kittens did eventually stop.

  • It means that you forced the kitten to wean too soon. If it's still wanting to nurse, it wasnt ready and obviously needs milk.
