    If she's 4 pounds and doesn't look too skinny she's probably just a naturally small cat, and probably the runt of her litter. When I'm trim I'm about 4.5lbs and right now all bulked up for winter (read- a chubby little munchkin) I'm tipping the scales at about 6lbs. If you're concerned she's too skinny by all means have the vet take a look at her, but if her weight is still distributed like is in her photo and she looks similar to the other cats only shorter and smaller she's probably just a small girl. The world's smallest cat is about 3lbs and he's perfectly healthy- http://www.cvm.missouri.edu/news/mrpeebles.htm
