Kittens are born with blue eyes. They begin to change color about two weeks after their eyes open.
Dogs’ wet noses help them smell better. The mucus attracts and “catches” more chemical scent particles in the air.
Domestic cats love to play, especially kittens love to chase toys and play fight. Play fighting among kittens may be a way for them to practice and learn skills for hunting and fighting.
The phrase “raining cats and dogs” originated in seventeenth-century England. During heavy rainstorms, many homeless animals would drown and float down the streets, giving the appearance that it had actually rained cats and dogs.
