Black-Footed Kittens


Born: April 2, 2012
Home: Cleveland Metroparks Zoo - Cleveland, OH

All About Baby: Weighing just 7 ounces at birth, fluff and all, these two mewing bundles of joy spring from mom, Godiva, and father, Wyatt -- the first black-footed cats ever exhibited at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

Who Knew? Black-footed cats are the world's smallest felines, maxing out at 3.5 pounds. Found in the grasslands and savannas of Africa, these mini kitties grow quickly. After gestating for just 63-68 days, they eat solid foods by five weeks, and hunt prey by six.
