可爱的小猫是如何长大的

How Kittens Go From Clueless to Cute | Deep Look

The beginning of life can be so fragile.
生命的初始状态是如此脆弱
Kittens are born helpless, hungry.
小猫们生下来时很弱小 饥肠辘辘
They can barely get around on their own.
甚至爬不了多远
Their eyes are sealed shut,
小猫们眼睛都没睁开
and their ears folded up.
耳朵还耷拉着
Their brains aren’t developed enough to use those senses.
它们的大脑不够发达 有的感官还用不上
Instead, a kitten uses smell and touch
小猫只能通过嗅觉和触觉
to find its mother’s milk.
来找到母亲的乳头
And it needs constant warmth to survive.
小猫还需要持续保暖才能活下来
This is what it will look like in just a few weeks.
几周后 它们就会长成这个样子
Frisky.
活蹦乱跳
Independent.
独立自主
But in the early days,
但是 在最初这段时间
cat moms are on the hook for a lot.
猫妈妈还需全身心投入照顾它们
So why are their babies born so underdeveloped?
为什么刚出生的小猫如此发育不全呢?
Well, cats have big litters.
猫咪一次会生很多幼崽
This mama had seven.
这只猫妈妈生了七只小猫
Hunting with a big belly isn’t easy.
大腹便便的去觅食可不容易
And growing that many babies takes a lot of energy.
怀着这么多小猫要耗费猫妈妈很多能量
So mom gives birth to them before they’re fully baked.
因此 母猫在小猫未发育成熟时便分娩
They’re what’s known as altricial.
猫属于晚熟的类型
That’s from the Latin root “to nourish.”
这个词源于拉丁文的字根 意思是“养育”
Other baby animals are born with a head start.
别的动物出生时都是头部先出来
Foals can stand up within an hour of being born.
小马驹出生一小时后就可以站起来
They’re precocial.
马属于早熟的类型
They don’t need their moms as much.
小马驹不需要妈妈照顾太多
So what about us?
我们人类又如何呢
Our ears and eyes are open,
人出生就能眼看耳听
a sign our brains are further along than a kitten’s.
这表示婴儿大脑发育远比小猫成熟
But we’re still pretty much just as helpless as they are.
但婴儿也和小猫一样弱小
We’re considered secondarily altricial.
人类属于次晚熟类型
I know, I know.
我知道 我知道的
OK, back to those kittens.
继续说小猫
In the spring, cats start having babies, lots of them.
春天是猫咪繁育的季节 会生出许多幼崽
OK.
好的
“Kitten season” is a huge problem for animal shelters.
猫咪繁育时节 动物收容所忙的不可开交
These two-week old kittens need to be hand-fed every few hours …
两周大的小猫 要隔几小时亲手喂养一次
day and night.
无论白天黑夜都是
They can’t even pee on their own.
小猫甚至都不能自己排尿
They need stimulation from their foster mom,
要养育者给予一定的刺激
to mimic the licking their cat mom would do.
模拟母猫的舔舐才行
All this work makes it hard to find volunteers to care for these newborns.
这活太累 很少人自愿照顾刚出生的小猫
So animal shelters like this one
因此 这个动物收容所
have partnered with the University of California, Davis,
与加州大学戴维斯分校合作
to find ways to make it easier.
探索能更轻松养育小猫的方法
They’re trying to figure out
人们想试试
if keeping the kittens extra warm and cozy,
让小猫待在更暖和舒服的环境
like with this incubator,
比如在这样的保育器里
might make it possible for caretakers to feed them less frequently.
能否减少给小猫喂食的频率
It’s inspired by those mama cats,
人们的灵感来源于母猫
who do this tough job really well, nurturing their babies
母猫把喂养小猫这种苦累活干得很好
so they can take the time they need
这样才能给小猫足够的成长发育时间
to wake up to the world,
它们才能顺利睁开眼睛看世界
which kinda reminds me,
这让我想起
maybe I should call my mom.
或许应该给我妈打电话问问
Hey, it’s Lauren.
你好 我是劳伦
We need you like this kitten needs its foster mom.
我们需要你的帮助 就像小猫需要喂养员
