Thank you both for your advice.
millie121, yes, he eats very well! no problems there...only issue is getting our other adult cat, Zoe to stop eating his food. lol. When we first got him, he was a bit on the skinny side, and now he's a healthy growing young guy. But you're very right, he is merly like a kid sucking it's thumb...he goes into a complete trance when he does the suckling.
kathydip, poor Boo! sounds like he was anything but thrilled with the kitten sucking on him! very cute story!
I have tried pushing him away repeatedly with no success. For example, last night, i was fast asleep, and my boyfriend told me this morning that Charlie was at me from 2am until about 5:30 at which time my boyfriend finally gave up and put Charlie in the carrier. He doesn't seem to sleep through the night, because when he's roaming free, he's coming to me every hour to suckle. And when he's in the carrier, he's meowing and crying all night long.
One thing i forgot to add, is that the times when he roams, and i wake up to him attached to my ear, i push him off, and pull the sheets up over my head....and even with doing that, he's still at me, walking all over my head and face trying to get at me. he just won't get the hint! i don't want to have to keep him in the carrier every night! i want the little guy to be able to roam and play. i just need him to suckle on something else!
