How do you weigh your cats?

How do you weigh your cats? I put them directly on the scale. I use to do the 2nd option because I assumed they wouldn't stand on the scale long enough to get a good reading.

I weigh mine on a digital baby weigh scale, so they sit directly on it.

I have a mechanical pet scale. I weigh them once a week. They're very good about sitting quietly while I check their weight.

I have a digital postal scale. I just put an laundry basket on the scale, set it to zero & then put the cat in the basket.

I have a baby scale, which doesn't seem to work very accurately because it says Bailey and Sammi weigh 20-21 lbs each. I need to have it fixed.

I have a digital scale too, but that doesn't really matter how I anwser the Q.....
I weigh myself and then me + cat and subtract. It is much easier that way.

Rogue and Fry was just at the vet on Monday for their booster shots. I don't remember their weight... I was too busy trying to keep an eye on both of them and making sure they woud stay on the scale.

Boyfriend said Fry gained one whole pound since the last visit, which was a month ago! He's going to be a BIG cat!

I weigh myself, then weigh myself with the cat in my arms, then subtract the difference (the subtracted number is the cat's weight). I can't put the cat on the scale by herself, because then she'd try to get away and it could trick the scale. When we first got our scale, I tried putting Willow on it like that, and it said she was 12 pounds. When I stepped on and held her, then subtracted the weight, it said she was actually 9 pounds.
