A kitten’s growth rate is faster than the average cat. By 8 weeks of age, most kittens are between 4 to 5 pounds (1.8-2.3 kg). Kittens can be very active at this stage and will often play with toys or chew on your fingers or toes!
At 6 months of age, they’ll weigh about 7-13 pounds (3-6 kg), depending on the breed and feeding method you choose for them. This means that by 9 months of age, most cats have reached adult size – around 10 to 13 pounds (4-6kg).
Why do some people think my cat is too small?
The difference in weight between a tiny kitten and an adult can seem huge but it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with their health or development. Most people reach adulthood weighing somewhere between 12 lbs & 20lbs so there really isn’t any reason to worry if your feline friend only weighs 3 lbs when they’re just starting out!
