Personality Is Affected In The Womb


Pregnancy lasts for two months and while the physical development of pups and kits is directly related to their mother’s health and nutrition, there’s good evidence that a pet’s adult emotions are also affected by the womb environment it finds itself in. Mothers who are severely stressed during pregnancy may produce young with more extremes in behaviour, reduced learning ability and increased emotional states. Well nourished young are not just healthier, they crawl, walk, run and play earlier, learn faster and have fewer emotional problems than young from malnourished mothers. These are powerful reasons why you should always get a kitten or puppy from a hobby or obsessive breeder rather than from a commercial breeder.
