Kitten Sucking on Blanket

I have just adopted a kitten who is suckling on one of my soft blanket. Is there anything I can do to help her either stop suckling or comfort her more?

This is just a comfort mode for your little one. No need to worry :)

This must be a very young kitten only just taken away from the mother as she still feels she is sucking for milk. She will stop it as soon as she finds out there is no milk there .

Sounds like she was taken away from her mother early on. Remove the blanket and maybe allow her to play with kitten toys.

This is a self-soothing behavior that is not harmful

Get her own little blanket that you can wash once in awhile. Some cats continue to do this and many stop as they get older.

It is harmless unless she can get pieces off the blanket. Make sure you get her a blanket that is in good shape.

Please be sure the kitten is not getting any fibers off whatever you alow her to have. It does not appear to be harmful but many cats continue this into adult life and may have a difficult time coping without it.

Here are a couple of links that discuss this behavior and what you might try to help the kitten overcome this desire.
