I'm not sure how much he weighs last time I weighed him was about6 months ago and he weiged 12-13 lbs, I'm sure he's larger now, he's about 2, and he is a bigg furr ball tis why I think he looks so huge, he';s also very tall, but his hair is gotten so much longer that his pattern looks off hehe :p

I LOVE pics 4 and 5 -- kitty looks like he is a king and you should kiss his paw. What character! Oh -- and Oliver is a domestic shorthaired classic tabby (if that's Oliver in the first pic), and Little is a domestic short haired mackeral torbie. (its when there are orange colored patches in the tabby pattern). I thought that Heather's Oliver was a mackerel tabby, but I don't really remember any pics that really show his markings well -- he's usually sitting up like a person. lol.

That's cool that you know her parents, but HER coloring is her own. Her parents have their own colorings, even if they were both domestic shorthair -- calico is a color/pattern not a breed. :) Make sense? So HER coloring and pattern is mackerel torbie (it looks like from the pictures) or you might call her a tabby with red highlights, and her breed is domestic shorthair, just like her parents.

For example, if my kitty is a silver tabby, and her parents were a shaded silver tabby and a brown tabby, I would just call her a silver tabby, not shaded silver tabby mixed with brown tabby, because those are colors, not breeds. But if my kitty's parents were a siamese and an american shorthair, I'd call her a siamese/american shorthair mix because that is her breed. Hope that's not too confusing. :)

Ah ok I understand, not too confusing :p I understand. Well either way her father was a huge black /orange/white cat and her mom was a tiny little solid grey/.silver tabby. but I get what you mean about the coloring and ect.
