Smallest Cat In The World????

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
We think we may have one of the smallest cats in the world here!

Molly or MJ as we call her, or Moo as we normally call her is tiny, shes almost 1 and the vet says she won't grow any more, she is so small, and shes long haired so shes actually even smaller than she appears, I haven't had her weighed but according to the Guinness World of Records the smallest cat in the world is called Mr Peebles and he weighs 3.9lb. We saw a picture of him and Moo is way smaller....

Anyone else have a story like this or have any ideas what we should do with our little miracle?

I'm just looking for the mini moo herself and her brother so I can post a pic for you all to see!!!

OMG...How wicked is that! You've soooo got to hurry and post pics of that little darling! If she's smaller than this Mr Peebles then you should contact the Guiness World of Records people about your little Molly.

Yeah definately!

I'm just trying to find Parker so you can see her stood next to her brother for a size definition! Although Parkers a big lad as well but more normal cat size than Moo...

I'll get right on it!!!!!

Yes Go for it!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with a midget cat. Luna is 10 lbs and 1.5 yrs old. She isn't growing anymore, but its fun to tease her by saying "When are going to grow?"

did you really mean 10 pounds? because that doesn't sound small to me. Pixel weighs 11, Java's about 9.5, & Cable's 8 pounds - none of them are particularly small.

Compared to my BF's cats (15-20 lbs) she is SMALL. She still looks like she did 3 months after I got her.
The last time I was at the vet she weighed in at 10.

To me, ten pounds is a normal weight for a female cat. Sheba is 9.5 pounds and is about three years old. She was up to 11.2 pounds a year ago, but was too fat at that weight, so I started restricting her food more. She is a good weight now for her bone structure.

Red Cat is 15 pounds and OBESE. It is common for male cats to weigh a little more than females, but RC was a good weight about 11 pounds.

15-20 pounds might not be overweight for a male cat with a large bone structure, but I believe it is overweight or obese for the average cat.

Well I'm still working on getting Moo and Parker in the same room - she isn't that fond of her brother unless she feels like it so we're still trying!

A couple of weeks ago she actualy fell into the bath (don't panic it was cold) but she turned into the teeniest little thing!

You should get a picture of her next to... a hairbrush or something! Then we'll see just how small she is.

Or a picture of her next to a ruler.

Emma is bitty, bitty tiny. I call her my perma-kitten. She's about 6 or 7 lbs and has the tiniest little paws, face, etc.! She makes Oliver, who's about 13/14 lbs, look like a hulking mass!

Pictures of Moo, please!!!

Yeah, Gracie weighs 8 pounds, and Lola only weighed 5 and a half at her biggest when she went to the bridge- now SHE was a tiny cat!

Both Patches and Beauty are big-boned cats, so I've been trying to get all 3 together, but I know THAT will never happen. Plus our other friends have cats that are large in size compared to Luna.

Oh yes, I can't wait to see this tiny kitty Moo!

Ophelia is 6 years old and weighs 7 pounds. She's a petite little thing, especially next to Trent to is 16 pounds and not fat at all. She likes the arrangement though...she loves to snuggle into Trent.

On our Vet papers... (the bills) it lists the weight in kilos, 3.9 X 2.2 is 8.58.. or just over 8 and a half pounds. This confused us before we understood they were using metric.

Since's she so small, maybe you should sit her next to a pea!

here is a picture of Mr Peebles, the world's smallest cat, with a slide show, and video. The kitty has a genetic defect. In one pic you see him next to an adult and you can see how really tiny he is.....if Moo is smaller..then he is realllllllllllllllllllllllllllll tiny

Wasn't this on another forum??? Sheba at her largest was 7.2# She averaged between 6.5 and 7#'s. The vets had me watch her weight as she was always so skinny. She however was energetic and ate enough food. She had silver tabby colors and her only litter she had a kitten with siamese colors!! Lots of people would say what a pretty kitten-they couldn't believe she was much older. She went to RB at age 9.

Oooh wow. I've always thought Sashka was a tiny little thing - she's nearly two and she only weighs 5 pounds. It's really surreal. She is extremely healthy, the vet just says she is a tiny, tiny little girl. I love it - it's like having a permanent kitten without all the mad crazy kitten behaviour!

If your Moo is that small, you should definitely measure her against a ruler or something...how cool would that be??
post #22 of 39
Wow...so all in the same week there has been a report on a very fat cat and now one on the tiniest cat!
post #23 of 39
I had a boy once that weighed 4.5 pounds as an adult, but unfortunately he had a genetic defect and passed at 18 months.

Let's see a picture of Moo!!!

Kitters is a quite petite little girl herself, she is 4 and now finally made it to 6 lbs. she was only 5 1/2 for a long long time! But she doesn't have anything wrong with her she's just tiny!

Cute! Sounds like my Pandora. She's tiny and maybe weighs 6lbs. I'll have to stick her on the scale and see how much she weighs. She is the tiniest kitty I've ever seen though.

Spaz is 12 years old and 7 pounds.
My ex-boyfriend had an old girl who weighed 4 pounds soaking wet.

Ok here we go I have pictures of young Moo and her brother Parker as well...

First one is just for amusement really, she looks like shes about to be sucked into the tube lol!


This is young Parker so you know what he looks like, hes my little baby, he screams at the top of his lungs if you leave him in a room asleep and he wakes up alone!


And the one you've all been waiting for, not a great picture but we finally got them next to each other to give you a rough idea of how small she is, I still don't know how much she weighs, but its abut the same as 2 bags of sugar if that helps, maybe its just me and shes not THAT small but remembre, her fur is an inch long as well so she really is quite teeny under it all....


So there you have it... My teeny kitty!
