In a nut shell, honestly? I think it's all about comfort. Kittens don't always suck on mama kitty for milk, sometimes they do it because it comforts them. Just because mama isn't avaliable any more doesn't mean they don't forget the comfort they've come to associate with the behaviour. My one Turkish Angora Mystique (aka the Squeaker Toy) used my ear as her 'binkie' until she was almost 12 months old! If I wore ear rings (and mind you I have a total of 8 piercings: 4 per ear) I had to remember to take them out at night lest she managed to work one loose.
