How Fast Does A Kitten Grow?

A kitten grows, on average, at a rate of 1-2mm every day. In the first 3 months of life they can grow as much as 2 cm per day! If you see your kitten growing quickly it is likely because he or she has been eating more frequently. This can be from having more play time with their littermates and siblings to being kept in an area where food is present for them to eat when they are hungry. Unlike humans, kittens do not need much sleep at this age so if you see your kitten sleeping longer than usual then that could also mean that he or she has been getting enough rest!

Does my cat have fleas? What should I do about it?

Flea infestations in cats are very common but unfortunately there is no easy way to get rid of fleas without using pesticides which are dangerous to both pets and people around them. Flea bites cause irritation and itching which will lead to scratching causing further problems such as skin infections if left untreated. Cats which have suffered from an untreated flea infestation may become severely allergic due to the number of bites received over time making them prone to secondary bacterial infections including abscesses, pneumonia or septicemia (blood poisoning). The best advice we can give regarding fleas is prevention through good hygiene practices by removing any bedding/clothing etc where possible after use hence reducing opportunities for animals coming into contact with infected animals therefore preventing the spread of disease within the household pet
