    ...are kittens considerd to be cats?


    My dad reckons its when a cat reaches 2 years old, they turn from kitten to cat, searching online people say once they hit a year old they are a cat....altho one person says thier cat is 18years old and still growing a little and that it depends on your cat :S hahahahah im hoping they meant months!

    I have wondered this as well. Soda is going to be a year old on may 23rd. But she is sooo tiny she still looks like a kitten. I swear you could pick her up and hide her in your sweater. I really should get a photo of all the cats lined up to show how tiny she is.
