do you prefer big cats or small cats?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I personally love the large solid cats the best! What do you prefer the small fragile ones that always look like kittens or the large solid ones that look like a wild cat?

I love em all! Trout is a dainty girl though

I love them all, but do prefer really big ones (Maine Coons are my faves) and tiny, little runts of the litter, like my Little Miss--I'm a sucker for a helpless animal!

I love both, but I'd have to say I prefer the smaller ones... they're easier to pick up and carry around when they insist on being held!

Blaze is a medium sized cat.So, I would say --either or for me.

I'm an equal opportunity lover of kitties! Big, small, skinny, fat... they're all gorgeous!

I do like both, but id I had to choose between the two i'd definetely choose the big kitty.

And Abyssinians!

Any cat will do for me That's why I have in my home:

Many domestics, numerous Abys, a Persian, a Maine Coon, A Cornie, A Norwegian and an E Burm (oh and the American Shorthair visitor!)!

I love all of them!! Oh mother of the ex adopted a beautiful little scottish fold kitten and i got to play with him a few weeks before the split. He was a gorgeous creamy (buff?) colour, chewed on EVERYTHING and was the sweetest tiny thing ever. I'd never played with pure bred kitties before (don't get me wrong, i love all my domestics) but it was so exciting! He was chubby and stumpy Cleo is slender and looks like a tiger, Charlie is stretchy and a little chubby. I don't mind what they look like (as long as they don't eat my toes)

I like tall and long cats, but generally prefer a small build to a chunky build, if that makes sense! Both my cats are quite large in terms of height (and length in Jaffa's case) but both are quite slender.

They are both beautiful in their own way. Small cats are easier to hold though.

I love them all My Pixel has a huge belly now bless her heart and Widget is fluffy and big but skinny. LOL You would think the opposite.

Out of my 5 cats I like the smaller ones at 7-8lbs. They are much more comfortable sitting on me than my 17lb cat and much easier to pick up and much easier to bathe.

Ohhhhh, good point there! Now I know how much bathing a Maine Coon takes out of a person (not to mention drying a wet Maine Coon...) I will admit to loving smaller cats a tiny bit more!

I like all cats, but I know I tend to fall in love with the bigger ones at the shelter

I have an even mix. 2 cats are big, 2 are small and petite and Ceasar is more of a lg cat that is long & lean but not a stick. He's about 10 lbs, the little ones are 7-8 and nuit is 13 bentley is probably more like 17 lbs. I like the big cats to cuddle with at night! As far as lying on you at night the small ones are a better thing!

I like either, but big fluffy kitties have a definite place in my heart.

Both Sassy and Pixie are very solidly built cats and are both fairly big and heavy.

Linus is small, sleek and weights about 5 lbs at the most.

So I guess I love both kinds.

Well I think it depends. I love the look of some huge males. As long as they are muscular and not fat. But I tend to lean towards smaller cats. Calamity and Skye are both small girls. Sundance is 10 lbs and to me is HUGE. Because hes the biggest cat in the house right now.

I love them all, but I do love a long, tall kitty best!
post #23 of 25
I've had both - smallest was my rexes (female 6 lbs) and largest so far was a mixed breed male (14 lbs). The smaller ones are a lot easier to carry around in showing. I don't think I'd want one more then about 14 lbs

Was a Maine Coon in the last show that was the biggest cat I've seen - at almost 21 lbs - and NO way would I want to carry that kitty around for very long

Well, I like all of them!!! However, I would prefer smaller ones becasue then I could fit more in my house!!

I love them all but if I had to choose I would say smaller cats. They have always seemed to be more loving towards me.
