    Hey everyone, I have a 5 1/2 month old female kitten who’s head is tiny compared to her body. She’s a healthy girl at a good weight but to me, her head is so so small! Looking back at photos it has barely grown in a month. We have a small kitten collar for her but on the smallest it goes, is still far too big. Every few weeks we try it for size but it’s still the same! Will her head catch up with the rest of her?
    Ive attached a photo which is the best one I’ve got showing how small it is! Thank you in advance!

    My girls both had small necks and small heads until they were about 18 mths old. They stayed looking kittenish all that time, though their bodies grew. They are aged 7 y/o now and still smallish cats with fairly small heads. :)

    She shouldn't really need a collar at that age. She looks fine to me, my one girl is tiny still and she is nearly 8.

    Thank you everyone for the replies! You’ve all put my mind at ease so thank you :) I think she may just be a smaller cat like her mum who is now one and fits perfectly in a kitten collar and is 3.2kg!
