When we think of kittens, we tend to think about cute, little bundles of fur.
And yet it is certainly not uncommon to see the odd overweight kitten.
In those formative months, kittens’ bodies are growing and developing at a rapid rate and will continue to do so until they reach adulthood at around the one-year mark.
During this period there can be a tendency for pet parents to overfeed their new family member, mainly because of that diminutive stature leading to fears they’re too lean.
If they end up eating more calories than they’re burning though, it won’t be long before they’re on the path to obesity.
