What should I expect from my 6-month-old kitten?

The basic rule of thumb is that the average-sized cat will gain about 1 pound a month, so at six months of age, your kitten should weigh about 6 pounds with a lanky torso and legs. It may seem a little disproportionate, but your kitten will soon grow into its long legs and body just like a human preteen does.

How long can a 6 month old kitten go without eating?

Cats can survive for up to two weeks without food providing they have access to water. However, without access to protein, they can die within three or four days even if they are hydrated.

Can you leave a 6 month old kitten alone?

Kittens under 4 months of age can be left alone for up to 4 hours. A kitten 4 to 5 months old can be left alone for up to 5 hours. A 6-month-old kitten can be left alone for up to 8 hours. So if your kitten is less than 6 months old, do not leave it alone for 8 hours.

Do kittens grow out of aggression?

Like their feline cousins, your domesticated kitten sharpens their hunting skills by partaking in play aggression. ... While most cats grow out of this habit after 18 months, here are a few ways you can quickly stop your kitten biting things they shouldn't.

Is it normal for kittens to bite each other?

Kittens look so cute when they're cuddled up together, but they can appear fierce during playtime. Rough play is normal in kittens and cats up to about 2 years old, and that includes biting each other under the neck. This is a quick way to kill prey, so your cat is likely keeping his hunting skills sharp.
