Addison is only 9 pounds. I know cats come in all shapes and sizes, and he's not an overly big cat (and from some of your pictures, I do mean BIG!) but I still think he could weigh more. He doesn't look skinny or anything, but it seems like he has a definate change in shape where a "waist" would be... between his round little belly and his hip bones.

I know he's healthy and all, and not really extremely hyper or active and doesn't eat too much, but I was just curious about how much everyone's cats weigh just for comparison.

Cleo is 8.5 lbs, Lucas is 9.5 lbs and Levi is 11.5 lbs (he's a *big* kitty!). From what you describe, Addison sounds normal. There should just be a slight waist from the hips to ribs. You should be able to feel a thin layer of fat over his ribs.

Tiddy - 14lbs
Bean - 17lbs
Hoggle - 8lbs.
Rhiannon - 13lbs.
Chieve - 9lbs.
Bella - 13lbs.

Bean, Rhiannon and Bella are overweight. Bean is a large cat but should probably only weigh about 13lbs. All of mine are different shapes and sizes...I have small, medium and large.

This isn't exact, but Stormy is around 10 pounds with Justin around 17.
Justin really needs to lose some weight and I'm still trying to figure out how to make that happen :?

Try a wet food diet. That is what everyone suggested for me when I asked. I'll e weighing Zoee tomorrow to check on her progress!

I've always wondered what the right weight is. I think it does depend on the cat. I read somewhere that 6-10 lbs is average. Which would make all of mine overweight. I don't really think they are. Just my BIG girl :D

That's funny - my nickname is Bean and my cat Moby is also 17 pounds! My other cat Julia is 11.

Mozart: 10.4 lbs.
Ginza: 14.07 lbs.
Kayla: 8.07 lbs.
Pixie: 10.11 lbs.

They are at their correct weight now, except for Pixie, who still needs to lose one pound.

I have a digital baby weigh scale, and weigh them every 2 weeks.
