What's interesting is that I read somewhere that the woman was small and the cat was a maine coon. Now, a small woman plus a large cat makes it look like a LARGER cat. I'd like to see how big he is when he's wet.

She's about the size of my little brother, & that's still big! (considering he's about 5 ft. tall at 8 years old )

I'd hate for that "kitty" to be mad at me.

Is it kinda common for a maine coon to be that large or just large in general?

Yeah, Maine Coons are huge, often. I have read it is not uncommon for males to be over 20 pounds, without being overweight.

Here is something from a FAQ I once read:
Quote:
Although the Yankee myth of 30-pound cats is just that, a myth (unless the cat is grossly overweight!), these are indeed tall, muscular, big-boned cats; males commonly reach 13 to 18 pounds, with females normally weighing about 9 to 12 pounds. Add to that two or three inches of winter coat, and people will swear that they're looking at one big cat.
