Yep, Andy, the oldest of the quads is a tail sucker! I have never seen or heard of a cat doing this, but he does it on a regular basis.

Here's a couple of photos and a link to my website that has videos for those who can or want to see them.

Sometimes it the tail, sometimes the belly or a blanket, commonly referred to as wool sucking. Most often happens when a kitten is taken away from mom too early & this is their "comfort nursing" - usually not too much to worry about unless he is always coughing up hairballs or creating a bald/sore spot on his tail :D

Quite cute though, he is very handsome :lovestruck:

All the videos are adorable, such entertainment with 4 kittens at once :cloud9:

Aww, cute pics. I had a friend with a kitten that did that as well. He never ever grew out of it. It was funny cause sometimes you would pick him up and get all ewwwwww thinking it was pee but then you remembered and all was ok :D.
