Q. How do I determine how big my cat will get?
 
A. Kittens at different ages grow at different rates; kittens less than 6 months of age grow relatively faster than older kittens. Generally, an adult cat will weigh about twice as much as she did when she was 4 months of age. The growth rate for a kitten who will be about 7 pounds at adulthood is shown below.
