The gestation lasts about 60 days. From the first day of birth the mother looks the pups lovingly (in the photo we can see Pelosa and her pups).
The care and nursing of the pups can be done by more than one cat (in the photo we can see Pelosa and her daughter Pecora taking care of their pups together). The weaning takes place gradually from the first month of life.
The game is not only a way to acquire command of own ability, but it is also a cheerful pastime (in the first photo we can see Pelo Rosso and Zàzza playing with the ball, in the second photo Grigina plays with her master).
