Here are a few interesting facts about kittens’ that we bet you didn’t know!
When kittens are born, they all have blue eyes – just like human babies. That’s because the brown pigment that’s responsible for influencing the eye color has not yet developed in the irises of the kitten’s eyes. Exposure to UV light also causes the eye to darken, so until the kitten’s eye are fully open, they will remain blue. Some breeds of cats such as Siamese and Balinese all have blue eyes, even as adults! Kittens’ noses are all totally different!
Just like human fingerprints, no two kittens have exactly the same nose. Who knew? Are you left-handed or right-handed? Well, did you know that your kitten has a dominant paw, just like you do! However, in kittens, girls are usually right-pawed, whereas boys are more likely to be left-pawed. Watch your kitten next time he or she is playing to see which paw is more dominant!
