When is a kitten its full size

Oliver is 6 months old and is still eating about 12 oz. of wet food a day. (Wellness) Just wondering when he will be full size.

My cats are all still under 1 yr, so I'm learning as they grow up. I read somewhere that a cat is an adult at about a year and a half, but they could keep growing up to two years. Of course, that doesn't count gaining weight once full grown. Maybe someone else here who's been living with their cats longer can give better info. At any rate, you still have a ways to go!

Tommy is 6 lbs and Rocket is 10 lbs, and Rocket's only a month older.

A main coon isn't full size until age of 3......

so it depends on the type of cat you have. I love main coons, and would get one someday if I could!!

Yeah, it does depend on factors like breed, nutriotion and health, but your average domestic crossbreed cat is generally 80% of its adult weight by 7 months of age, if that helps. My youngest were fully grown by about 12 months or so, and they are averagely large moggies.

I stand corrected!! Thanks. I thought that sounded long. When I adopted Rocket he was 6 lbs, and the vet said he was about half grown.
