This week seems to be all about cute kittens and that’s due to my WANA friend Ali Dent and her awesome blog. She offered to review my book Complete Kitten Care and then followed up today with an author interview (gulp!).
- Newborn kittens can’t regulate body temperature.
- Although blind and deaf at birth, newborns scent-mark Mom-cat’s milk bar and usually return to the same nipple each time.
- The prime socialization period for kittens is 2-7 weeks of age (BEFORE they go to new homes)!
- A four-month-old kitten can go into heat and become pregnant.
- Kittens “talk” more with silent body language and scent than with spits, hisses, purrs or meows.
- Meows tend to be aimed more at humans than at other cats.
Learn more in the book, of course. 🙂 And if you’re very bored and want to find out what makes this weird pet-centric writer work, please visit Ali Dent’s blog for her interview with me–AMY SHOJAI, THE UNTOLD STORY!
