Kitten eating but not putting on a lot of weight

by Jan

My cat is 5 months old, eats a lot and drinks a lot of water, urinates a lot, and has two vey healthy bowel movements every day. She is growing longer, but not filling out, still looks long and lean. Is she OK?

Answer by KAte
Sounds fine to me. How a cat develops depends on their breed genes, some cats are stockier and others are lean. I have two brothers one is thin and long the other heavier and a little round.

I wouldn't worry too much at this stage. If you feel at all concerned over the coming months ten take her to the vets to have er checked over. Its always better to be on the safe side if you are at all worried.
