I adopted a 9 week old kitten 2 weeks ago and I saw this today... my labradoodle is a 16month old male, very loving dog but I would never expected him to adopt a kitten as his little son. It just feels strange seeing a male kitten suckling on a male dogs teat. I try discouraging it but the little kitten keep doing it and bigfoot does not mind.

Wow, animals are amazing! I would rather have that peaceful situation than hissing, barking and chasing.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Actually it is not that unusual for the kitten
and dog to behave like that.
That is why the experts tell you to get a kitten/puppy
to go with your adult cat/dog.

Years ago our kitten "nursed on my Irish Setter who was only about a year old....One teat got very swollen and infected....we had to take the setter to the vet and discourage the kitten from latching on anymore....

Don't know what happened to cause that....but it was sweet while we could let the kitty use the dog as a pacifier.... :lol:

thanks eveyone. it has been a few days now n the kitten is still suckling. i am trying to stop it because one of bigfoot's nipple is red. bigfoot sleeps inside his crate during the evening. hope that ends it soon.
