Thank you.

My vet wants him to double his weight. I think that is unlikely to ever happen.

He was all ribs when he came to me and while he is still skinny he isn't all bones like he was. Only a small amount of weight gain but enough on his tiny frame to make him look more healthy and not malnourished.


And by the way he keeps runs after me, too fast for his little legs sometimes you know he is doing well lol

I think that is pretty good weight gain in two weeks, right?

Kilos confuse me.. I prefer working in pounds and my maths sucks lol
That is GREAT news! Just used the online kg > pounds convertor and he now weighs 2lb 10.082oz. That seems like wonderful progress.

Remind me how old he is, please?

Unless he is emiciated, doubling his weight at his age isn't likely. It's possible, though. You'll be very surprised what a great diet can do. So you'll just have to wait and see. You can usually tell by looking at their frame what weight would be healthy. Since he's still growing, he may very well end up at 5 lbs. He does appear long in relation right now, but he's at that age. Most go through that. It'll all even out. My chance looked exactly like Forrest before he was neutered. He matured kinda slow due to his size. But neutering him helped get some weight on him. At one point he was as round as he is tall. We had to cut his food back, and now he's at a healthy weight.

That is still great progress. As T and others have already said, he will grow appropriate for his body and the rate he is growing is good news!

My littlest one was his size and a poor eater. She suffered a couple of hypoglycemic crashes which required hospitalization. Now she is tough stuff and a little piggy when it comes to eating. He could end up smaller like her or he could surprise you!

Sounds to me (and others here) that you are doing all the best for him and he is headed onward and upward from here. Well done!
