Our Baby World: Kittens

Fast facts about kittens:

  • These tiny lil gals and guys don’t just snuggle next to each other to be adorable (although they absolutely are). They do it because so their small bodies can regulate temperature.
  • Kittens eyes and ear canals are closed during their first few days of birth. Around 10 days (but sometimes as old as 21 days), they start to see and hear.
  • Each adorable noise your kitten makes has a different meaning. A drawn out squeal means your kitten feels lonely (go cuddle with it, you monster!). Shorter cries means your lil fur baby is hungry.
  • By the time a kitten is 4 weeks old, it will usually start sampling its mother’s food.

Fast facts about Holland lops:

  • Any rabbit with ears that fall vertically from their head is considered a lop.
  • Holland lops are the smallest of their adorable lop brethren (other lop types include, but aren’t limited to: American fuzzy, English, French, and mini). They were bred in the 60s by combining French, Netherlands and mini lops.
  • Lops are as diverse as they are cute. The only thing they have in common are their ears. Hollands are diminutive darlings whereas English and French lops often weigh in at a hefty 9 pounds and have longer ears. English lops are the oldest and rarest lop breed.
  • Hollands are perky and make especially wonderful pets, as they are affectionate and easily trainable. Don’t be surprised if yours gives you a gentle bunbuns kiss.
  • Unlike other breeds, Hollands are sensitive to alfalfa, which in large quantities can be fatal.

Otter Pup

Fast facts about otters:

  • Male otters are known as boars, females are sows, and their offspring are pups.
  • At 99 pounds, the sea otter is the heaviest member of the weasel family.

  • According to otter-world.com, there are 13 species of otters. The best known are the giant otter, northern river otter, and sea otter.
  • Otters call every continent home except for Australia and Antartica.
  • Otters spend a frequent amount of time grooming their bodies. This isn’t vanity, it’s survival. Otters need to keep oil and other substances off their fur so they can stay warm in the water and not die.
