Is your cat.....Fat?

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
How much does your cat weigh? I just weighed Tiger and he's a whopping 22lbs!
But he doesn't look fat He's just a big boy....

What about your cats?

I'll give 200 pts to the person with the pudgiest kitty

MY old vet thought they were, but my new one has seen Sophie who weighs about the same as Rosie and she said she was fine.

They must weigh approx 12-13lb

Ok, so he's a little pudgy at 15-16 lbs

Nope - no fat cats here Mosi is 3.4kg (about 7lbs?) and growing, and I'm not sure about Jaffa as he's not been weighed for a long time but he was approx 12lbs and he's definitely not overweight - he's tall and long but very slim build.

Scully is my heaviest at 20-21lbs, but I must say that is very unhealthy for him (better than the 30+lbs he weighed when we got him but still unhealthy).

As far as Tiger being overweight, only your vet can tell you, our vet said Bumps is 'not too bad' at 16lbs but Boomer at the same weight would be obese. On the other hand, male Maine Coons can be 25lbs and perfect body weights

LOL! Biiig kitties!
Molly may be like 5 or 6 pounds and Polly possibly 5.
They aren't underweight, just lean and very petite. Their mom is the same way.

Teddy's my biggest worry at the moment

He's nearly 10lbs and the little tinker is only 7/8mths old he is such an opportuntist, can hear a tin opened at 300 paces and clears up anything if it should get left which of course does if DH is on Kitchen Duties - he's such an old softie with them all If its me, every bowl gets moved as soon as a cat walks away. Maria my vet said if we're not careful we'll soon have a panther on our hands

Dinos a fatty hes about 18lbs - his tummy sway is just crazy and actually flaps from side to side when he runs - which luckily for onlookers isnt that often

Moofs & Peps are both fine, they have a little spay sway, but you cant really see at all

Last time Patches was weighed she was about 22lbs too. But that was 7 years ago. She's gotten pudgier sense.

Maggie was weighed by the vet on Friday 13lbs 10 ounces, not bad according to the vet. Jazz weighs in at 12 lbs but also has a spay sway that swings back and forth when she walks/runs I love it!!!!!

The vet said Summer is in the "ideal" category and we can only hope she stays 8 pounds for the rest of her life, and so far she has.

The vet hasn't said anythnig about Chevy's weight, but then again, he's young and still growing every minute. Howver, I do think he's in the overweight category for his frame. He's 8.5 lbs and 9 months old. He's not as big as your Teddy Mooficat, so that makes me feel a little better.

I stopped giving them caned food because it would upset his stomach because he would eat it so fast. He would also eat Summer's left overs. He gets lots of exercise, but I definitely think he's eating more than his share. Summer never ate her full daily serving when she was an only cat, and she probably isn't now....so that only leaves one culprit!

Well- now I don't feel so bad.

Sneaky Pie is 13 lbs. One of my neighbors asked if she was pregnant, or if she just liked to eat She is overweight though, she's not a very big kitty to begin with. I try, I haven't been feeding her every time she decides "It's time to feed the Sneaky cat."

Mistoflees has lost weight. In his younger days (he's 15 now) he was about 13-14 lbs. Very muscular though. He's now down to about 11-12 lbs, which really scared me at first. The vet says it's ok, a lot of it is muscle, and I can tell he doesn't have the muscle tone he used to have when he was younger.

Yeah Tiger is fat! Weight Management Food did him wrong! Now he gets a wet/dry mix! I took him off weight management and I am feeding him Felidae Wet and Nutro Max Cat Kitten until it's gone! I have over half a bag of Wellness Healthy Weight Dry and half a bag of Nutro Weight Management that I don't know what to do with! He has gained at least 4 pounds in a year being on weight management food and he is active! From now on he will get regular adult formulations of dry!

Big Milo is between 22 and 25 pounds. He's a very big kitty.

Zebra is only 5 pounds and Milo is around 9-10 pounds. I call them my small, medium and big kitties.

Ling is a bit fatter then I think she should be - she's pushing 10 lbs (will watch so she's not any bigger).

Charlie is 7 months old and about 8 1/2 lbs (or close to it - last time I weighed him he was 8.2) Solid muscle.

The biggest cat I've ever owned was Mitten - at 14 lbs solid muscle. I'm used to rex size cats - like 5-7 lbs! Charlie will be the 2nd biggest cat (12 lbs) when full grown.

Reeses was 7 the last time we had her weighed, but she wasn't eating as much and was throwing up. She's put some weight on her for sure since then, but I'd still say she's only about 8lbs.
