|Hi Keoke Bunny--I guess you ran into some mean times when you were a baby, but your family sounds wonderful now! It's okay about the lettuce...I love lettuce...and we know we're not really rabbits. I was adopted at a pet store when I was a tiny kitten, and although I was healthy the cat mother was told later that I may not have come from a very nice place. I tell you this, because I too like to "nurse" -- or I guess you could call it that! I knead and suck my thumb. Always did. At first the cat mother thought like yours that I was insecure and had bad experiences and would grow out of it. Uh uh. I'm "old" now and, well, I still suck my paw. I don't lick off fur or chew or do any damage except make it wet. I am not neurotic and am probably the most serene cat around. I slurp a little and it surprises some people when I get on their lap and cuddle and slurp... no harm done, and I am happy and loved.
prrrrs to you, sweet Keoke.
