Cat sucking tummy?

Is it normal for kittens to suck their tummy? He litterally sucks his tummy. When he does it he'll do it until I make him stop. He was treated for worms earlier today so maybe he's in pain?

I don't knwo the age. I found him this morning. I forgot to ask the vet about his age. I can find out in ten days. But if it helps but he has baby teeth. And it looks like more are comming in I not sure though. The vet told me to put him on dry kitten food. So maybe it is a comfort thing his momma did?

Sounds to me like a comfort thing. A kitten that I got a long time ago was given away way too young and he would suck on his tail all the time. He's actually get angry when I made him stop. Maybe this cat just prefers his stomach, lol.

meecee, my 18+yr old sucks her front paws, usually when she's sleeping soundly. She's done that since she was a baby. Maybe she's having kitten flashbacks while dreaming LOL
