Hello everyone, I searched out this forum specifically for this problem, so I hope you guys can help!
My boyfriend and I got two kittens from the humane society about a month ago and they are about 4 months old right now. They are brothers from the same litter, but have very different temperaments. The concern that I have is that the smaller of them, Hoot, has not been growing at the same rate than his brother, Popo. They both seem to be eating fine, I haven't noticed Popo stealing Hoot's food or anything like that, but Hoot is much smaller that Popo. The other thing that I have noticed is that Hoot's belly is much larger, proportionally, to his body size. It's not large, round and firm, but rather hangs down below him. I was wondering if it is potentially an absorption issue with his food or something.
He doesn't appear to be less active than before and seems healthy, but if there is the potential for a problem, I would like to catch it now.
I don't have any real good pictures of the belly, but if that would help clarify, I could get one and post it.
I hope someone can help and thanks for taking the time to read through this!
