Kitten Corner > 12 wk old kitten suddenly very clingy


Purred: Sun Jul 28, '13 12:49am PST 
Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to give some background info. The 1st couple days of June we found Tiger abandoned & decided to keep him. I was unsure of how old he was, he had no teeth yet, but was walking quite well. Within a wk he had 2 top & 2 bottom teeth, over the next wk or so the rest of his teeth came in. He took to the litter box right away & when we went to bed at night he would walk over to his cat bed & go to sleep. He seemed to take to everything so well & very sweet and loving kitty. One thing I noticed is whenever he cuddles up to anyone he starts to purr then suckle & kneed anywhere on ur body he can. At first I thought it was cute, but overtime it has got aggravating & I stop him whenever he tries. He has now taken to laying on the bathroom rug and sucking & kneeding on it. Then out of nowhere, the last week when I go out onto the porch he will stand at the screendoor & meow or climb the screen until he can see me & meows till I come inside. The first few days he wouldn't do it when I was on the back porch, only when I was on the front porch, now it's both. If I'm doing dishes he will stand at my feet, when I come out of the bathroom he's sitting right outside the door looking up at me. When I go up to my room anytime of day just putting up laundry & coming back out he chases after me. When I go to bed he will meow outside the door & put his paws underneath. I tried waiting a bit to see if he'd give up & go to his bed but he carries on. If I let him in he'll sleep for awhile but then gets up and plays & starts making all kinds of noises w/whatever he's found to play with. He always liked to cuddle w/me at times during the day over the last 2 months but never did any of this stuff.He will always do this to my husband & our 2 boys at times but mostly just me. I dont know whats causing his clingy behaivor lately! I'm a stay at home mom so he's not left alone & he's got plenty of toys, a cat tower, we play with him plenty. Anyone have any ideas? I love my kitty but he's driving me crazy lately! If it makes any difference I'm thinking he's about 12 wks or so.
