We have a kitten who is now 14 weeks 1 day old. He isn't yet 3 pounds. The picture of him on the stairs was him at 12 weeks, the picture of him curled up is him at 14 weeks. He was the runt, and when we got him from the rescue at 10 weeks he was 1 pound 6 ounces is all. He has grown considerably since then obviously, but is eating constantly. I am having to sleep on the floor in my husband's office because he will be up every 2 hours, won't eat hard food still, and won't eat soft food if it is starting to dry out. He wakes me up multiple times through the night to eat. The vet was sure he had worms in spite of having been dewormed by the foster, because when he eats he is like a big round water balloon with long skinny legs tacked on. His head is all eyes and ears. He doesn't have any extra padding anywhere like most kittens I'm used to do. He is still not quite to the size our other cat was at 10 weeks. He is a very happy kitten except when he gets overly tired and then he throws a tantrum, and except for being tiny and skinny he seems very healthy. I am just wondering how small is too small and how you convince a kitten to eat hard food when he is extra picky so he can free feed. Given his choice I think he'd still be nursing.
