How Much Should A 6 Month Old Kitten Weigh?

A kitten’s weight will vary from day to day, and from month to month. In general a 6-month old kitten should weigh between 2-3 lbs., but this is just an average guideline. Some kittens that are born at the very upper end of the range or at the lower end of it can have healthy weights for their size while others may be underweight. It is important not to estimate a kitten’s body weight by looking at its head alone because generally there will be some difference in how much he weighs depending on where you look!

Kittens usually gain a little bit of weight each week until they reach adult size, so if your cat seems to be gaining weight too quickly you might want to check with your veterinarian about possible causes for this problem including dehydration, worms or other medical problems that could interfere with growth rate.
