Wildcat kittens get first taste of meat

Two black-footed wildcat kittens at the San Diego Zoo are getting their first taste of meat.The kittens were born on April 28 and now weigh a pound and a half each.

While they are still being nursed by their mother, zookeepers have begun using tongs to feed them a carnivorous diet of small pieces of meat."This allows us to make sure that the cats don't associate our hands with food so we avoid bites, but also to make sure that we're far enough distance back that the cats feel comfortable approaching us for their food," Chelsea Davis, San Diego Zoo wildlife care specialist, said.
