Yep. Dr. Meemersworth is an ear-nibbler. Fact. Not sure how she developed this bad habit or why, but it’s ridiculously freaking adorable that she wants to nibble ears when she’s sleepy.

Our guess: she thinks it’s a nipple, maybe. If not that, she’s also doing that kneading thing that cats do when they’re ready for sleeps. Thing is, I’ve raised four cats growing up (Simon here) and none of them ever made ear nibbles while kneading. Meemersworth won’t even knead anywhere else unless there’s a nibbleable ear present.

Also, I’ve got no idea how Martina can endure this with a straight face. She does it to me as well, and – I swear – it’s so freaking ticklish. YES! DOTHRAKI MAN WARRIORS CAN BE TICKLED AS WELL! Martina can sleep through the nibbles and kissy sounds, but I can’t last 40 seconds of it without cracking up.

  1. OMG this is beyond the cutest thing i have ever seen. Im like squealing like a fangirl here.

  2. Oh my gosh, this is too fralipping cute! Meemers is way too adorable! :3

  3. Oh wow, eat your kimchi is now on wimp.com, my worlds are colliding!

  4. I am not a cat lover but that has to be the most adorable kitten I’ve ever seen.

  5. My cat (6month old!!) is doing the same thing!!
    except he does it to everywhere, to my arms, legs, torso and even my real nipple!!!
    I am getting sexually harassed by my cat! Don’t suck my nipple kitty!!

  6. My cat when she was a kitten used to suck on both my mothers and I’s neck because she was weening off the milk and so the sucking gave her relief, y’know?!

  7. Extremely cute. How can you cute like that..

  8. This video is destined to go viral. Cute kitties are like crack on youtube! 

  9. Ow.. i think my heart exploded from excessive cuteness overload

  10. My sister has a cat and he used to do the same thing. When we would lay down, the cat would come up to us and start sucking on our hands, face, arms. But he doesn’t do it anymore. I have never seen a cat do that before. It was really cute but rather annoying.

  11. My 3 year old cat does that to my giant stuffed blue teddy bear…And lol… ear-nipple XD

  12. Cute. I am a dog lover more than a cat lover but I really like how cats tend to be sweet and playful. 

  13. My kitten used to do this all the time!! I thought it was the most adorable thing ever….except for the fact that her claws were razor sharp and when she kneaded my neck it felt like knives attacking me…. But other than that, the ear-nibbling was cute! And yes, I’ve asked around and they do supposedly think it’s a nipple. She totally grew out of it though, no problem. It was just cute while it lasted!

  14. We have a Scottish Fold crossed with a Ragdoll cat, and when we got him as a kitten he nibble/sucked on ears when you cuddled him in bed too! It’s so adorable, unfortunately he grew out of it, but it was adorable while it lasted! 
    Is she fairly vocal? Our cat Bilbo is so vocal, if you imitate a cat meowing, he will meow right back at you, so adorable, I was just wondering whether it was common in Scottish Folds.
    Anyway she seems like a complete bundle of joy! I think you were extremely lucky with your pick :’)

  15. SO cute!! Photon (aka Master of Chaos), used to do that to my 45lb dog, Samson. Except, he’d bite Samson’s stomach and rip out of hair – with the same exact sleepy-happy face that Dr. Meemersworth is making. I love your kitten even more, now haha

  16. Aww… so cute!!!! Can you do a documentary of something of Meemersworth?? It will be very cute!!!

  17. yeah, few of my cats used to suckle me and my sisters’ hair. i remember my sis waking up with her hair completely exploded and in a total mess because the cat would have been sucking her hair all night long. lol

  18. You just can’t NOT love this little kitty-cat <3

  19. it means that she was taken away from mum too early. i have seen this with my friends kittens that are now middle age. they still do this. except instead of to peoples ears (which rarely happens now), my friends cats do it to blankets. its so gross as theyre older cuz they leave wet drooly spots on the blankets so now when my friend goes to sleep she puts an additional blanket over the one she is using so that her nice one, underneath, doesnt get ruined. they scoop up some of the blanket in their mouth and suck on it (making the same noise meemers made) and doing the claw kneading thing. perhaps doing some research online will find a solution to this urge that meemers has? good luck.

  20. I bet she would order ears if she’s ever going to a restaurant.
    “Here’s the menu.”
    “I’ll take the ears please.”

  21. Love how every now and then she looks up like “whut?….don’t judge..”

  22. Keep sucking meemers…..but no milk is gonna come out   

    ): sad reality

    but wouldn’t it be hilarious if milk started coming out of our ears?! O:

  23. i had a cat he would do it on your ear lobe it was freaky ! but he really loved it.. and he didnt grow out of it either ,, snuggle to just get at your ear

  24. a lot of kittens arent ready to leave their mothers (emotionally) and it leads to a need to nurse…you got her at six weeks, and thats rather early…

  25. kawaii_candie

    omg… she is just too fucking cute….

    but… isn’t that kinda painful?

    you guys and your videos are seriously making me want to have a kitty… which is no good cuz i am allergic and my place won’t let me have one… :(

  26. For a moment, I thought the kitten was actually biting Martina’s ear, but it’s cute seeing her suckle it. Reminds me of the time I had my youngest dog lick my ears when he was a puppy, and he clamped his teeth on my earlobe. I felt like my ear was getting pierced, that’s how painful it was. Now, he’s older and knows better — but I still don’t let him near my ears.

  27. First thought: How can you endure it?! I couldn’t even endure it when my cat jumped on my lap without laughing… v_v

    Other then that it’s so cute! ♥
    While she is a kitty it probably has more to do with the searching for mom/milk kinda thing, later on cats just look for a cozy place to sleep.

  28. the kneading thing is something cats do to the mother to get more milk to come to the nipple, they do it later on in life as a sign of comfort (like us sleeping in fetal position) since she’s sucking/biting and doing it she definitely wants some Martine ear milk action :P

  29. Kittens are actually not supposed to be seperated from their mothers before they are 12 weeks old. From 8 – 12 weeks, the kittens are learning alot from their mother. They are actually nursing til they are 12 weeks old, so this may be the reason for why she is nibbling on your ears :) 

  30. this kitty is so adorable! sucking to ears – what about trying to get kittens milk formula and a special bottle in pet shop and give him that every day, maybe he would like it? 

  31. Why are you so cute!! :D

  32. lol this is too cute!!!! 

  33. I had a stray kitten who did this. The trick was a really awesome scarf I had became his baby blanket but it worked like a charm. I literally placed it over my head and by the end of that same day he had dumped my ear for the blanky. Maybe give it a whirl you might have the same luck. 

  34. All these feels! I-I can’t!
    My new kittens should do that.. But then again who knows where their paws and mouths were o.e. ( germophobic in the house! )

  35. I used to help out and my family friend’s pet store, and the kittens who were taken from their mothers too early would try to suckle milk off the older kittens when we weren’t bottle feeding them.  You guys got her really early in her life.  In California, it is illegal to sell or adopt out a kitten or puppy that is younger than eight weeks old because they are not old enough to be transfered from their mothers to humans yet, and some die without proper nutrition or care.  Luckily Dr. Meemersworth is alight because you are responsible pet owners!  But she will probably do that for a two or three more weeks… 

  36. I’ve had 5 cats and only one kneads; he was a shelter cat and was probably weaned too early. The same is probably true of Meemers :( Although I raised one with a bottle from 2 weeks of age and she doesn’t knead or ear nibble, she makes paw flowers when she’s happy

  37. so cute.
    what if one day you wake up with no ear xD

  38. My cat was weaned too early and used to suckle on my clothing (over the shoulder) if I held her.  I sorta broke that habit, she’ll still do it if I let her. But because she started expressing her anal glands as she suckled, leaving me a *OMG VOMIGT* streak on my arm… *ggagg* I had to stop it. I guess it was her way of telling me how relaxed and happy she was. *Squirt*

  39. My cat did the exact same thing to my ears :D

  40. My cat does the exact same thing except with a blanket, and he is almost 3 years old! Still the cutest thing ever!

  41. She’s suckling. Sometimes you can teach them to suckle on something else, like a towel or blanket. My new cat is just a little over two years old and will knead everything, including our skin, so we’ve had to teach him not to knead on people. It’s a trial and error thing, especially since my cat is going through a terrible twos phase.

  42. PunkyPrincess92

    throughout that whole video all i could think was she’s so freakin’ cute, she’s so freakin’ cute, she’s so freakin’ cute!!!! she’s just so CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. I have a little dilute tortoiseshell cat and she used to suck her own tail when she was sleepy. Her tail was always wet – she’s about four years old now and she still has that habit! :)

  44. Do you guys let her play with spudgy at all? How do they get along? You should try to capture a good moment between them and share it with us!!! ^.^

  45. Meemers is beyond adorable, but this made my ear feel violated. Like when you watch video of someone getting hurt and you can feel their pain

  46. Oh Martina, you are such a tolerant mommy. 

  47. Oh that was too freaking adorable!

  48. my kitty loves my feet :p she caresses them (with her paws), sleeps next to them and nibbles my toes XD 

  49. I used to have a little teacup chihuahua and she would nibble on my ears like that. 

  50. My cat, Kimchi,  used to knead my hair and nibble his own paw when he was little. His paw was constantly wet lol. He stopped when he grew up.

  51. I had a cat who used to do this! it was SUPER adorable when she was a kitten but she never grew out of it and did it even when she was 5 years old. I asked the vet and they said it was because she was weaned a little too early and this was her way of comforting herself. adorable right?? 

  52. You are the most evil epic overlords of all time, getting an adorable cat and suckering us all in to watching your videos.  I.  CAN’T.  STOP.  WATCHING.


  53. My puppy used to nibble on my hand. I guess it’s their form of teething. Meemersworth is so adorable! Cuteness!

  54. Omg~ >_< Too much cute~!!

    But yeah, it does sound like she's suckling off of you guys. Kittens sometimes do the kneading thing when they're getting milk – helping to get more milk out of mama. You guys are her pacifier! :D

  55. When I first got my cat (when she was a teeny baby) she used to suckle and do pancakes on my shirt and my neck. I’d wake up in the morning and have slobber all over my shirt or little scratch marks and mini hickies on my neck!

  56. Michael Collins

    Maybe Dr. Meemersworth is in fact a zombie and is trying to eat your brains! Watch out for the kittehzombie!

  57. OMG! Soooo adorable!!! Our puppies do that too and it’s sooo effin ticklish. :))

  58. omggggggggggg she is so cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee i wish my dad will allow me to have a pet 

  59. She’s adorable :D but yeah, she was probably weaned a little too early and is now using your ear to suckle.  Most of it is for comfort, kind of like a baby with a pacifier or thumb.  I’ve had a lot of cats for pets since I was little and I’ve had two that have done that, one used to use my arm.

    You might want to discourage her because there’s a possability she’ll continue into adulthood.  Adorable now as a fuzzy kitten, not so adorable (ok, kinda adorable) when she’s a 9 pound ball of fluff :o especially when she’s using her paws to knead your face and neck.  If you’re looking to discourage, vinegar might work, or that oil/juice from citrus from, from the rind, an there’s always stuff from the pet store or vet.

    You might try subbing something for your ear?  One of my cats uses a blanket :p although subbing doesn’t always work sometimes.

    • This exactly. I believe you said you got her at 6 weeks old? Generally it’s suggested to get them around 8-10 weeks so they don’t have these habits and are weaned properly. I got one when he was 5 weeks (I was told 8, nasty sock) and he was attached to me at ALL TIMES. Slept on my shoulder when I was working, etc.

    •  My cat did a similar thing and she was way older when we took her. she was kneading our heads while sucking on our hair…wasn’t that comfy^^; we didn’t want her to keep on doing that, so we started to stop her.  and it worked :D

      • Yeah, my one cat who uses a blanket was weaned at 8 weeks and still does it.  She does it because she has a bit of an anxiety problem though and the suckling comforts her, it’s been getting better though :D.

      • Yes! A cat that my aunt had used to do the same thing in our hair hahaha It’s kinda a mix of “oh she’s cute” with “wait that hurts” with “blergh my hair is becoming disgusting” hahaha

    • I’m glad you replied so thoroughly, I was thinking of how to condense all of that info and you did it really well. :D

      I’m definitely on the discouraging boat. I also got my cat too early, and as a kitten she would suck on my forearm and knead me. It was adorable! But now she is 14 years old and close to 15lbs. Not to mention her claws HURT now when she kneads. Not so cute anymore

      So, Simon and Martina, if you think it’s slightly annoying now. It’s only going to get worse when she is huge and trying to sleep on your neck. I agree with Azure, cat’s hate citrus, so if you could use it on your ears.

      Meemers the ear vampire!

  60. So cute! But its another reason to add to my list of ‘Why I will never get a cat!’

  61. ‘She’s sucking at my ear nipple’ :p

  62. “A kitten at my pillow eating my ears, a puppy at my feet and a giant dothraki man warrior at my side”-rephrasing Martina’s words from another video

  63. that looks adorable and painful.
    yay for us Worthers Originals lol
    thats what im calling meemersworths fanclub

  64.  Ahh I wish my kitty had this cute trait. Instead he thinks knocking cold water off my nightstand and onto my face at 7 AM is cute >.<

  65. That is so adorable :D What breed?

  66. Most cats wait till you die to eat you.

  67. OH MY GOSH!! Soooo cute!! chu~

  68. …..is it weird that I suddenly want to get married just so we can take videos of each other playing with kittens?


  70. Oh gosh that sounds painful >__< But it's so adorable! 

  71. If every time Dr. Meemersworth did something adorable and that somehow caused a shower of meaty bacon to fly down from the heavens, there would probably be enough bacon to feed everyone in Korea. :D

  72. cutest thing I’ve ever seen a kitten do >.<! so adorable 

  73. I SWEAR TO GAWD… I was watching this video and looked over and my cat was watching Dr Meermersworth too.

  74. That is so adorable!  I think I heard somewhere that sometimes kittens knead to let their mama know that they’re there while they nurse.  No idea if that’s true, but there you go! ^^

  75. She is trying to nurse…. it is out of habit. 

  76. How did you guys came up with Meemers name? Really curious :P

  77. My 2-eye colloured white cat used to do that on my arm >< (sorry for the bad spelling. Dutch girl talking here xD)

  78. So fricken adorable! I agree with the nipple idea. My cats made kissy noises like that when they were still nursing.
