Growth Rate in Kittens

He is a big boy!

Really? We were worried he is not gaining as well as he used to. He was gaining 2lbs per month and now is gaining only 1/2lb each in the past 2 months. His sister outweighs him by several pounds. He is lean though and she has a more husky build. They are maine coon mix.

They gain more as kittens and slow down as they get older...he may fill out a bit...every cat is an individual though and grow at different levels...don't be worried...he is dong fine!

I too, am interested in growth rates. I kept track every month with my dogs and will be doing the same with my F2 savannah. Today he is 4 months old and weighs 7 lbs 3 oz. Does anyone have monthly numbers recorded for theirs that they would'nt mind sharing?
I just checked my calendar because that's where I would record my kitties' weight. He is an F2 boy and he weighed about the same as your guy at the same age. At 6 months old he weighed 15 lbs. He's 17 months old now and weighs about 23 lbs.

Hi, if it helps, I weigh my SV's every week. At 16 weeks, my F1 male weighed 8.8 lbs and my F2 male weighed 6.1 lbs. cheers, dj
