why dont we feel mosquito bites

The reason you won't actually feel her bite is that they release a fast acting and local anaesthetic at the point where her proboscis penetrates your skin. It's not the bite that's important to her, it's getting the blood, so they need to numb the point of penetration so that you remain unaware while she sucks the blood out.
