Is there anyway to tell how big a kitten will be?

My mom got me and my long distant cousin about 5 wks ago. My cousin Noel is about a week younger than I am. We both were roughly 1lb when she got us. 5 wks later.. I am 3.5lbs and Noel is 2lbs. I'm almost double Noel's size (though we were the same size up until about 3 wks ago) I know sometimes they say that at 6 months a puppy is about 75% of the weight its going to be as an adult. I was wondering if there is anyway to tell with cats how big we will be?

    Not really... You can try looking at a growth chart for kittens. If you weigh more than the growth chart suggests for kittens your age (and are not chubby) you might end up being a larger cat. When I was rescued I was very skinny and did not weigh much though, but after a while I started growing quickly. I read that kittens grow about 1 pound a month but I was growing 2 pounds a month and was still slim. I'm now 9 pounds, slim, and still growing...
