I agree. One thing I looked for when finding a cat was overall size. Junior is now 9-10 months old, weighs around 12 pounds, is a good 4-5 inches across the chest when standing, and is close to 15 inches long from his neck to his butt.

I'm so glad you love your little man! My Sasha (RIP ) was a normal, small kitten and then -shazam- at 1 year he was 12 lbs and at 2 years he was 15 lbs and by 3 years he was 21 lbs. He was solid as a rock, all muscle....but as he aged that wasn't so good. I'm glad we moved to a house with stairs by the time he was 10 or I would have lost him. He trimmed down to a svelte 16 lbs and was active and happy. Bigger is not always better with the boy cats!

my max is the same way, he's a short hair orange tabby. at four months old he weighed the normalish 4.5 pounds. he is now six months old and he is HUGE! he looks practically like a full grown cat! we always noticed his paws were huge, but didn't know if cats were like dogs and you could judge future size by paws. i swear that max has at least tripled in size in two months!

I think she means what age do they go from scrawny kitten, to start developing into a mature male with large muscles and wide face.

In other words what age does a kitten like this

Start to look like this

Poor Bingley was starving when he found me last January. When I took him to the vet in April, he was at 11 lbs and I was THRILLED! He doesn't look to me like he has gotten much bigger, he seems pretty lean, but he is healthy and I keep hoping he'll bulk up a bit more.

Pippin is a whole other story! Having had a proper upbringing in his foster home from 3 weeks of age until I got him at 4 months he was a very healthy size. When I took him to the vet the first time (at age 4 months) he was already 7 lbs and the whole office was amazed at his size. There was another kitten there of about the same age and Pippin was close to 3x his size! LOL! He is quickly gaining on Bingley and I'm pretty sure he'll shortly outgrow him.

Jack's only 6 months old but i think he's going to be a big boy. He's grew so much compaired to the girls when they were that age, and he's starting to fill out as well
