Thin kitten
I adopted 2 kittens from the SPCA 10 days ago. They were both quite thin and boney. I' m feeding them whiskas dry and wet food. Both are eating ok-ish.The one is filling out nicely and is adapting very well to domestic life. The other is still very small and thin. They have been de-wormed. Should I be concerned? Will she start filling out as well? Litterbox use seems good for both of them.

Dear Petra

You can worm them every 2 weeks for a start and not to worry if you have only had them for 10 days. Give it a bit more time.
