Whenever it is ready. Believe it or not, some mother cats will allow their kittens to suckle for many months after they have been weaned. Most kittens will keep suckling for comfort reasons, as at three months old all its nutrition comes from solid food. If the mother and kitten live together, thee is no harm in letting the mother decide when she has had enough and stops the kitten on her own.
