It is well known that many mammals, including cats, carry their young from place to place, picking their teeth by the scruff. Move the kitten to the right place in another way a cat does not – she has no hands, like a monkey or bag, like a kangaroo.
As soon as the cat takes the kitten over the withers – and he immediately starts to calm down, and finally quiets down when the mother begins to move, holding it in his teeth.
Moreover, in the course of survey undertaken, the researchers found that kittens, even decreased pulse rate, and the behavior became peaceful for a very short period, sometimes after two or three seconds. At the same time the kittens took well known fetal position, relaxed in the teeth of the mother and pulling the legs to the torso.
