    Hello all, over the past week or so I have noticed that Bellinda (11 week old kit) has a fascination for licking her bits, just to be clear here, not her bum but her underneathy bits :blushing:!
    She licks herself until she squeeks, like a rubber glove on a wet glass, its so strange! :eek:

    Also while her head is up her bum and her back legs are firmly placed behind her ears she seems to go to sleep, purring like a generator and only waking up once in a while to lick (squeek) her bits?!?!?

    Anyone any ideas?

    I wonder if she is suckling on herself? Some cats do this - my neighbour's cat would suck for ages on a patch of her tummy. Might be worth discouraging it if you can, she could make herself sore. My neighbour used to tell Misty, "No bitty!" (Little Britain, lol)
