Weight/size

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My kitten Gigi is 4 months and 1 week old and weighs just under 6 pounds. Any guesses as to how big I might expect her to get?

The average growth rate of a kitten is 1 pound per month and Gigi appears to be going a little faster than that. But kittens often have growth spurts, so there's no telling at this point how big she'll get. If I had to guess, she'll be an average size of about 10 pounds.

yes, you should include the breed of your pet because that usually determine how large your pet will be...

Hi Gigi is a DSH rescue kitty I am glad to hear she is big for her age, as I am hoping she'll be a nice sized girl. I like a nice sturdy cat!

Sounds like she's gonna be a BIGGGGGGG girl. Average kittens are about a pound per month of age up to 10/11 months old - then they level off.

Females generally are a little smaller, so at 4 months old she should be 4-5 lbs. Is she spayed yet? If so, you'd better watch the weight and I would not be free feeding her if you are.

Oh good!!! LOL!! A nice big girl kitty She was spayed at eight weeks or so before I got her I don't free feed; I will watch her weight for sure!! At work we have a therapy cat named Tinkerbelle and poor Tinker is way too fat I don't want Gigi to wind up like that! Gigi is a harness walking kitty, so hopefully that'll help! Thanks!
