Weighing In

Hi, It's Linda. With certain kitties like Rascal, Grr and Mrs. B concerned about their weights, I became curious about how much OUR kitties weighed. Pumpkin was easy since I'm still weighing him in the basket on the postal scale. At 10-months-old, he weighs 8 1/4 pounds.
I had to resort to the dreaded cat carrier and the food scale for the rest of the cats. Blackie has always been slim and weighed in at 10 pounds. Tiger is getting more solid at 3-years-old and weighed in at 12 1/2 pounds. Bebe hid when he heard Blackie and Tiger complaining about being put in the carrier. I had to wait until I could catch him unawares sleeping in his kitty bed before I could get him in the carrier. He's a hefty 15 pounds. He's a big cat and though he DOES have a little bit of pooch to his belly, I don't think he's fat.

wow, we must bof be fat - i am a little ofurr 1 year old and I weigh 13 lbs (but only a little pooch on me) and Sammy is a little ofurr 2 years old and he weighs 14 lbs - and his pooch swings when he walks. But, he is a really big boned kitty. Seriously, his legs are really thick. - Miles

Pumpkin, you look like that's a fun new game! "Ok Mom, I'll just sit here."
I fink I was weighed at the VET when I was 8 mos, but I've growed a LOT since then. Mom guesses I'm bout 10-12 lb now. She could compare me to her 12-lb bowlin ball! Bonnie's lost weight resently so now I weigh more than her. I fink she was bout 12 lb. She's difficult to weigh (surpise, surprise).

Curious: At our vet, they haf a scale in the lobby an you put the aminal or set the carrier+aminal on the scale. That's kinda scary cuz there are woofies waiting. At the mergency vet, the whole zamination table was a scale, so they just took efurryfing off but Bonnie (and her x-rays; she was lyin on them an wouldn't move). How do they weigh puddins at yur vet? Our scale at home isn't good under 20 lb and we're too heavy for the food scale.

Pumpkin, you look so cute sittin in that basket! We don't haf one of those scales an we hasta get on the big one wif one of the humans. We'll check on our current poundages. Grr's scared ta find out. Wheneffur anybuddy picks her up they says, "WHOA, you're heavy!" She doesn't like that.

I like mine basket. When Momma was done weighing me, I stayed in it after she put the scale away. Then I played chase wiff Momma's feets. She had anudder pictor of me posted last night but I don't look good wiff red glowy eyes so she took anudder pictor this morning with the flashy light turned off on the silver box. She sed mine eyes are real purrty in the sunlight.

Last time I wuz at the vet, they had a platform scale in the waiting area for the big woofies. Inside the examinashun room they got a small scale next to the cold silver table for the small woofies, kitties and bunnies.

Everyone is different in my household.

Marley - 16 lbs.
Emma - 9 lbs.
Benji - 12 lbs.! (He weighed this at 10 mos. I think!)

I'm starting to get concerned that Benji is a little fluffy, but he's very active and a big-boned kitty.

I agree, 16 pounds and a poochy does not make a Cat fat.
