Skinny Kitten

iv had my kitten since she was 6 weeks old, shes is now 10 weeks old. she is very skinny you can feel all her bones, we'v tried everything to get her eating more reguarlly, but shes only eating one pouch of wet food during one day and not touching the dry food. im starting to get worried because all the other kittens out of the litter are literally double her size
so if anyone has any ideas what i can do to fatten her up or increase her appetite it would helpful x

I'm having a similar problem

Check out my thread there...

Maybe she is a picky eater and doesn't like what you are giving her? Has she been checked for worms? If she's not eating she could be sick, if she's eating and not getting better she might have worms. My kittens don't have worms or anything wrong with them but they are scrawny too
