can mate at anytime of year. In order to attract a male puma, a female leaves a special smell on the ground. She also screams
loudly to attract males. Pumas mate usually in late winter and early spring. Most litters in the United States
are born between April and September. Both males and females become sexually mature by the age of two years. Males and females
only come together to mate, after mating, the male leaves. Two to three kittens are born after three months period. When the
puma kittens are born, they are blind. They usually weight just over one pound and are about 12 inches long. Puma kittens
have large spots on their fur, and rings on their tail. The kittens drink their mothers milk to grow big and strong. The mom
raises the kittens on her own.
