When we found our little kitten (Chichieto, or Cheech for short), he was only 4 to 4.5 weeks old, which is almost too young to be away from his mommy. But, he was abandoned, so we didn’t have any choice. One of the funny things the he developed is his love for our fuzzy, cheetah print blanket. He immediately took to it and whenever he sees it, he can’t help but run over to it, gently grab it in his mouth and start nursing on it. He usually does this for about an hour or until he falls asleep (with the blanket still in his mouth).
He got a little nervous when I shot this video of him, but normally, he is going off with the kneading and he purrs like crazy. It’s obviously soothing to him, sort of like when a kid sucks it’s thumb. So cute!
