I got two new kittens 3 wks ago. The ad said "8 wk old kittens." I intented to get one but fell in love with both of them. So brought them both home. The woman seemed to me to be a cat breed of siamese (i think) because she had also shown me a gorgeous siamese kitten that was their same size. Anyways, when I got home I decided to call her up and find out if the kittens were brother and sister (for any future medical reasons). She told me no and thought and happened to mention the boy kitten (Noel) was from a siamese cat and they were actually long distance cousins. Samhain (female) was 8 wks and Noel was a week younger. They were pretty much the same size and couldn't tell a difference as of a week ago.
Last night I started to notice that Samhain is definately getting bigger than Noel. She is now about 1 to 1/2 inches longer than he was, slightly taller, and more broad. She looks more like a full grown cat in apparence (well with the acception of her slight babyish face and small kitten size).
Noel tho still has that kitten look to them. His fur still looks kittenish, and he is smaller than Samhain. I thought maybe she had a growth spurt this week or something. He has been eating a drinking fine but he is still quite smaller.
Another catster member told me that cats grow at different rates and more than likely Samhain is just growing faster than Noel. I still worry just a little even tho the other member made me feel better about it.
