How Much Weight Should A Kitten Gain Per Day
If you’re reading this blog post, there’s a good chance that you just got yourself a new kitten! Congratulations, and welcome to the club. You’re probably spending your days rubbing bellies and trying to teach your new kitten how to use the litter box. However, you probably also have questions about how much weight your kitten should gain per day, especially if it’s a short-hair cat like a Siamese or Bengal and has little fur to cushion its tiny frame. Luckily for you, I’ve put together all of my top tips for monitoring weight gain in kittens (including when they need medical attention) into this easy-to-read guide:
A kitten should weigh approximately 1 pound at 2 months of age.
A 2-month-old kitten should weigh approximately 1 pound. According to Dr. Karen Becker, the best way to determine if your kitten is growing at a healthy rate is by having regular weigh-ins with your veterinarian. Kittens should be weighed in the veterinary office on a scale that reads in ounces, as opposed to pounds or kilograms. The vet will also let you know if your kitten needs more food and/or exercise, or if it’s healthy enough to continue its growth pattern without causing problems like obesity later on in life
A kitten should weigh approximately 2 pounds at 3 months of age.
A kitten should weigh approximately 2 pounds at 3 months of age. A kitten will gain about 1/2 ounce (1 g) per day in the first few weeks, but that rate will slow down to about a half ounce (1 g) every other day as he gets older. At 4 months old, your cat should weigh around 3 pounds (6 kg).
If you’re concerned that your pet isn’t gaining enough weight, talk to your veterinarian so they can recommend a feeding plan for your kitten and make sure there aren’t any other issues contributing to his lack of growth.

A kitten should weigh approximately 3 pounds at 4 months of age. Kittens can weigh more than 3 pounds at 4 months of age, and kittens that weigh less than 3 pounds at 4 months of age may be underweight.
A kitten should weigh approximately 4 pounds at 5 months of age.
A kitten should weigh approximately 4 pounds at 5 months of age. He should be eating a high-quality diet and drinking plenty of water. He should be going to the bathroom regularly and have regular bowel movements, and he should also be active and playful.

When it comes to a kitten’s weight, a little goes a long way. A kitten should weigh approximately 5 pounds at 6 months of age.
Kittens often require additional attention from the veterinarian and their owners as they grow up, especially if they are malnourished or visually impaired.
If your kitten has not been eating for more than 24 hours and you are concerned that this may be due to illness, take them to the vet immediately!
A kitten should weigh approximately 6 pounds at 7 months of age.
You can expect your kitten to weigh approximately 6 pounds at 7 months of age, 7 pounds at 8 months of age, 8 pounds at 9 months of age and so on until he reaches his full size. This is a good rule of thumb for determining how much weight your kitten should gain per day.
A kitten should weigh approximately 7 pounds at 8 months of age.
- Kittens should weigh approximately 7 pounds at 8 months of age. As you can imagine, this varies depending on the kitten’s breed, genetics and whether it is an indoor or outdoor cat. We recommend that you monitor your kitten closely as it gains weight to ensure that it is getting enough nutrition and remains healthy enough to live a long life with its new family.

You should know that a kitten’s weight depends on its breed, genetics and whether it is an indoor or outdoor cat.
In addition to these factors:
- How much food your kitten gets will affect its weight gain.
- How much exercise your kitten gets will affect its weight gain.
- How much sleep your kitten gets will also determine its ability to gain weight
Kittens need to be monitored closely as they gain weight to make sure they are healthy enough to live a long life with their new family.
Kittens need to be monitored closely as they gain weight to make sure they are healthy enough to live a long life with their new family. Kittens vary in size, so this number will differ from kitten to kitten. If your kitten is underweight or has been for some time, you should take him or her to the vet immediately.
As you can see, there is no set age at which a kitten should be weighed. A kitten needs to gain weight gradually over time so that it can grow into an adult cat without any problems. This means monitoring the amount of food your little one is getting each day and making sure they are eating enough to meet their needs but not too much that they become obese.
The best way to determine how much a kitten weighs is by weighing them regularly at home or having your veterinarian do it for you during their annual check-up. You can also monitor your furry friend’s weight by looking at them from above, as well as feeling along their ribs and spine for excess fat buildup around these areas if there are any signs of obesity present (i.e., chubby cheeks). Weighing them every week will help ensure the healthiest possible outcome for both mother and baby kittens because it takes less than two pounds per month on average to keep up with nutrition requirements during growth spurts between ages two-four months old.
