Though it is still early days and too soon to sheer, we just couldn’t wait any longer to share this wonderful news with you. One of our Black-footed catfemales, Beauty, living at our working alliance for the black-footed cats (a.o.) gave birth to one kitten on Wednesday night, October 15, 2014. So still only 9 days, but up till now Beauty is taking care of her kitten in a great way. As said it is still early days, esp. for the rare Black-footed cat kittens, but all in all it is wonderful news.
Our one male Blacky of course is the proud dad to the kitten. He is now with his other female Diva, who if we are lucky is about to deliver soon too. Keep them in your prayers and fingers crossed that all goes well. It would be so great for this endangered species (both in the wild and in captivity). We in WCW know that if they will make it anywhere they have the best chance at Cat Conservation Trust!!
