Healthy Kitten Growth Rate
Cats normally acquire one pound or so per month as a rough rule of thumb. Typically, a kitten weighs
around 1 pound at 4 weeks, 2 pounds at 8 weeks, and so on until it is around 4-5 months
old. Kittens develop the most during the first year of life, both in terms of weight and
height, and then they stabilize. The skeleton of a kitten that is one year old has several
of its growth plates close together. Your veterinarian will usually move your
kitten to an adult food at this point, as most of the growth has stopped.
