Black-footed Cat Kittens!
August 10, 2022
Two black-footed cat kittens, Stewie (male) and Meg (female) born on July 3, 2022 at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Texas. Born to Bandit, 2 yrs old, this was her first litter and she's been a superstar mom so far.
They each currently weigh around 350g (3/4 lb). Developmentally they are still nursing but have started eating small amounts of meat and will be fully weaned by around 3 months old.
During this stage of development, the care team monitors the kittens closely, handling them as you see here for weigh-ins and physical exams.
They have also started to venture a little further from the den lately. Both kittens are feisty, healthy, and growing fast.
