big paws = big cat?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've heard from several people that they think our 10 week old kitten is going to be a big cat because of the size of his paws. I'm just wondering if anyone on here finds any truth to that? Thanks I will say this..in only a week and a half or so he has grown WAY bigger than he was when we got him it seems like..

It holds true for dogs, I could imagine it would for cats, though perhaps not the polydactyl ones, since they've always got big paws.

I was told that with Stormy and she turned out small. I think it depends on the Cat.

i agree i think it depends on the cat, we have a tabby dsh whos about 4 years old, and he has huge paws and weighs in at 16lbs, not fat his just a big build and his at roughly what he should be.

I say not true.

Ginger had HUGE paws as a kitten and now at almost 3 years old, she's only 8 pounds at her heaviest.

My Yoshi that I lost last Month was 14 Pounds before he got sick and he never had big paws.

Tucker had the biggest paws as a kitten, but Peep has the biggest paws now. Neither of them are what would be considered large as they're right around ten lbs...so I'd say false - it really just depends on the cat.

When we went to visit Samson he seemed to have quite big paws and ears, but then he is a maine coon so he has a bit of a size advantage lol

Farley has bigger paws than Demetri and is bigger in size, though neither of them are full grown yet.
