Black-footed Mom & Kitten Play

"Female Lamu plays with her kitten." A. Sliwa

Black-footed cats take a reproductive pause in winter. At this time the low temperatures would make it difficult for kittens to stay warm enough when the mother is away hunting for 10-13 hours. Also in winter, rodent, bird chick and insect numbers are low, which are needed for the high food requirements while suckling kittens.
