size of a kitten

Is there a size range of kittens age group? The rescue said the kitten we got is about 4 or 5 months, but she looks like maybe 2 or 3 months cause she's really tiny. She's about 1/3 or 1/4 the size of Mojo who is full grown.

Re: size of a kitten

Very difficult to say when you don't know if they've received proper nourishment all along. But a kitten will typically reach 2 lbs around 8 weeks old. And gain .25 to .4 lbs per week from there. A significant way to judge age is by their teeth...kittens lose their baby teeth around 4.5 to 5 months old. So watch for that and you'll have a pretty good idea of age.
