    They all seem like great weights!

    Hope they're doing well almost a week on now from this post...

    They look fine - a small drop at the start isn't unusual. They should have gained around 100g over the week

    Yes these look fine to me. Roughly 10g a day in the norm, but sometimes a kitten won't gain as much one day but will make up for it the next. As long as the weights are steadily increasing week on week then all is well.

    They look OK, a dip is quite common, but would expect them to keep gaining most days from now on.

    Are you keeping a spreadsheet? It makes following trends easier.

    I was going to post one but see only image files can be uploaded. Let me know if you want it sending, it's for more recent versions of Excel (.xlsx) but I think I can save it for most spreadsheet programs. If you want it send me a PM.
