Black-Footed Cat Kittens Play with Crickets

(YouTube link)

Zoos find themselves in the strange position of buying animals for other animals. In this case, the Philadelphia Zoo got a shipment of live crickets for the Black-footed Cat kittens to play with. You remember when they were little. They’ve grown a lot, and now are almost as big as their mother! Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal are three months old now.

It seems weird to call them Black-foot Cat kittens, instead of just Black-footed kittens. But “Black-footed Cat” is the species. It’s like saying “Sand Cat cubs” instead of just Sand cubs. But wait- at what point do you classifying wild cats as cubs instead of kittens? Black-footed cats are smaller than domestic cats, but they are still wildcats! -via Uproxx
