Himalayan Weight

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the cutest female himalayan and she is about a year and a half old. She only weighs 7 pounds. Is this normal for the breed? I love that she is tiny but I want to know she is healthy. She was not the runt. Is she still growing? At what age do cats stop growing?

I have a himie as well. Have not weighted him for about 6 months, but when he was 1 year old, he too was about 7-8 lb. I know that himie and persians in general tend to be a bit smaller than some of the larger breeds. To be safe, you may want to check with your vet just in case. I'm just sharing with you how much our cat weights here. Hope this is helpful!

For a female Persian (actually Himi's ARE pointed Persians), that's about right. 7-9 lbs for females, 9-11 or 12 for the males. Persians look a lot bigger then they really are because of the coat.

You could try getting a little more weight on her if she feels too skinny or the weight is not muscle.

Jack is 7 months old and is a solid muscle weight of 8 pounds. He feels heavier then he is. That's muscle and not fat.
