We have to two kittens the male is larger than his oldest sister both are 12 weeks

worried about her appetite. Princess eat when we put food out but just seems to me that Zack eats more is that normal. Princess is active.

hi i have two brother kittens and i had the same problem. one cat seemed to be eating most of it and the other was thinner.

the way around this is to weigh out their food for each of them every day and use separate bowls. you may have to watch them eating or allow one to eat before the other. this way you will be able to monitor who is eating and who is not. if you discover the female is generally not eating her daily allowance then a trip to the vets would be advisable.

I feed only dry kitten food to my two so it is easy to weigh out and monitor. this also ensures they get plenty to drink as it makes them thirsty.

Follow the daily allowance on the food you are feeding.

best wishes Kate
