Hi there,

I have 5 kittens that are 5 days old. I weighed them yesterday and again today. 4 of the kittens have put on between 14-19gs in just over 24 hours but the smallest has put on just 4gs (0.14 oz), taking him to just 118gs. (The others weigh 142-152gs).

I was hoping for a little advice as I feel torn as to what to do. He seems to be feeding off my girl fine and is sleeping well and seems content between feeds etc (not crying or anything). As the average weight gain per day should be around 10gs, I am worried he will slip further behind if I don't intervene and feed him kitten milk myself. (I have Cimicat).

Any advice would be really appreciated.

Thanks :)
