    Panny does this to my fleece dressing gown and fleece throws as well (occasionally other materials aswell, but fleece he particularly goes mental for) - we got them too young so I think he's always used it as a substitute for Mummy. Nearly 13 months old now and I think he'll be doing it for a long time to come :p

    Schrodinger on the other hand has never done it and doesn't do it to any other type of material either.

    Mine has stopped the suckling but is still kneading. She's 8 months old and does it every single time she finds her blankets.

    Yep - my Gypsy does this to the furry throw that is on the bed. I go to sleep every night with my stomach being kneeded and this "slurp-slurp-slurp" noise!

    Paddy does it to the fleece blankets we have and to his doughnut bed. When we first got him he used to do it to my arm too but he doesn't bother with me as much now.
    No sure when he was separated from his mummy but probably quite young as he was a stray who was found on his own.

    One of my cats, Diego, does this. He will be turning 1 soon. I rescued him along with his mother so he definitely wasn't taken from his mum too early as she is still here lol

    He loves tshirty material and leaves massive wet patches. He is obsessed with my little girls clothes (she's 2) because she has a lot of this material and he even wakes her up early hours of the morning doing this to her sleeves of her pjs. She thinks it's funny...I find it a little frustrating when it's woken her up at 5am :001_tongue:

    My cat Beanie is 5 and still does this. He has his own special little cloth called a nuswa?? Not sure how it got the name but when we see he wants it the whole household runs around to find it for him.
