In this article we take a look back of how fast Katja, the ocelot, had grown up.
Katja is the first born of Lotje, the ocelot we have been observing since april 2013. The first time we 'met' Katja she was as big as a normal house cat, which was in June 2013.
This is a young Katja seen here with her mother, Lotje, on the background. This picture was taken in November 2013.
And here is Katja again. This picture was taken in november 2014, a year later. She matured within a year. Here she was already a young independent ocelot. Lotje had already giving birth to Spotje, Katja's younger sister.
As I have recorded many video's of these magnificent cats, I was also able to see the growth progress of Katja. These are stills of 2 video's taken separately (June and November 2013). See the difference of the 2 Katja's.
Here is a compilation of Katja's growth progress. You can also watch the video on youtube or this site. Enjoy!
