post #2 of 3

 In general,  for kittens up to somewhere around 6-8 months, it's usually about a pound per month.    So an 8 -9 week old usually weighs about 2 pounds.  and a 5 month old kitten usually weighs around 5 pounds. 

 

Of course there is some variation.   this is just average.   and in general females are usually a bit smaller than males.
