Follow the Litter - Cute Puppies & Cute Kittens

This page is dedicated to fans of puppies, kittens, and their moms! We feature a fostered dog litter or cat litter and watch them grow up through funny animal pictures and stories. Scroll down to view our latest litter on ‘Follow the Litter.’ Cute pics of moms and babies updated three times a week! You can also ‘Follow the Litter’ on our Twitter page.

New Year, New Litter! 


Welcome to the latest installment of Follow the Litter! Our new mama is Sweet, a Terrier-Schnauzer blend whose name suits her perfectly. On January 30, this little lady gave birth to seven snuggly puppies. Let’s meet them now!

These photos were taken when the puppies were 1-week-old. Their eyes were still closed, and they were eating constantly. They did not like leaving Mom to have their pictures taken! (But don’t worry, it was only for a few seconds.)

Keep checking this page to watch the “S” puppies grow! Be the first to know when updates are posted by following our Twitter account @followthelitter.
