If you add in a snack of canned food then I would do less dry. Most cats at this age weigh around 7- 8 pounds. As full grown adults most average cats weight around 10 pounds.
Key Takeaways. Most experts agree that cats reach adulthood at 12 months old but they may not reach full size until anywhere between 18 months to 4 years of age. Some cat breeds grow faster than others. Other factors also play a role, such as how much they are fed and when they are spayed and neutered.
At 7 to 9 months old , your cat is considered a young adolescent. He is exploring eagerly, and he is socializing and bonding with people. During this stage, your cat will experience rapid growth, and his baby teeth are now gone, replaced by stronger, adult teeth.
By nine months of age, your adolescent kitten is almost full grown and all of its baby teeth should be gone. Teething should cease, but your kitten may still discover how fun it is to chew on things.
Ideal Weight for Cats Most domestic cats should weigh about 10 pounds , though that can vary by breed and frame. A Siamese cat may weigh as few as 5 pounds , while a Maine Coon can be 25 pounds and healthy.
Most cats calm down considerably by the age of 3 or 4 years. Even after this is good to participate in their play to promote healthy development and bonding with you.
A cat can hold her tail vertically, move it from side to side, or pull it down between the legs. The average length of this incredibly mobile structure is 11 inches for males and 9.9 inches for females, which indicates tail length generally is relative to size of the cat .
Mature. As your cat grows older, you will start to see behavioral changes. From 7-10 years of age , your cat begins to lose their drive to play and is less active.
Still, there may be times when you must leave your adult cat for overnight or longer. ( Kittens younger than four months should not be left alone for more than four hours. Older than that, they can handle another hour or so. When they reach six months , they can tolerate an eight-hour day without company.)

While a kitten should pee every few hours, they may pass stool anywhere from 1 to 6 times a day, depending on the kitten’s age, care, and GI health. Sometimes, a kitten may even go 24 hours without pooping. If this happens, don’t panic—but do keep an eye on them and focus on trying to help them go potty.
2 – 16 years In the wild
Although there’s no reliable scientific way to calculate the relationship between human and cat years, it’s generally agreed that the first two years of a cat’s life are roughly equal to the first 25 of a human’s. After this, each additional year is around four ‘cat years’.
8-month-old kitten = 15 -year-old human. 1-year-old cat = adulthood, the equivalent of 18 human years.
