18 pounds?  Sounds like an armful!   Mine weigh pretty close to the same.  Around 11.5 to 12 pounds.  Occasionally Tattoo has hit 13.1 pounds.  He ain't fat either, that's one muscular cat.  And it feels like my arm got wrapped in barb wire when he gets spooked by a dog and has no other place to go but me.  Its worse when he climbs me to clamp onto my head.   He got surprised by a Dobie/Rottie mix puppy while we were cleaning up the inside the Jeep last summer.  Dog just walked right up and stuck its nose right IN Tattoo's kool aid!  YAOWWRRR!  SPITSPITSPITSPITSPITSPITSPITSPITSPITSPITSPITSPIT !!!!!  And the look on his face could have KILLED!   He swatted that puppy one time, who howled and left in a hurry.  It still took Tattoo a couple minutes to unwind, calm down, get his fur back down and slowly releasing my poor old arm.  He wanted me to carry him back in the house.  So I did.  And got the alcohol and cotton balls down and started cleaning up my arm.  Wow, all the little holes leaking red stuff.   Yeah poor cat.  That boy is STRONG!   Sheesh!   The puppy spooked him.  After that split second, he was pissed!  LOL!


That's about 7-8 pounds difference and that is a large difference as far as I'm concerned: between picking her up now (I can't) and picking her up when she weighed 12 pounds (I could). I can't have her in my lap any more because she shuts off the circulation in my legs after about 3-4 minutes. She's a dense, big-boned stocky girl...about 19" long from base of tail to nose and about a foot at the head crown; 10" more or less at the shoulder. She doesn't eat human food at all - only dry and about 1/2 cup a day of that. She does have cat-grass to eat. Mostly she's lazy and sleeps a lot. I got her a toy and have been playing with her with it to get some exercise - and fun. Trouble is, she never wants me to stop.

Oh, not to mention she's squirming mightily if you're trying to pick her up, which makes them feel another five pounds or more heavier.

The joys of being single no wiggling and bouncing child or grand or great grand in the lap

Now the 12# cat in the lap when he deigns to sit in my lap is another story. Especially while in the bed he has a tendency to hit the stomach area with his paws and knead and knead and knead and well, you get the point
"But who is stronger, truly, I asked myself, he who continues to wound and bleed himself to please others, or he who refuses any longer to do so?"

Yup, it's about the same. Lol.

My cat always manages to dig her 'elbows' into my leg in places where there are arteries and veins, so it's like putting a clamp on them.

Ah I meant my two weigh about the same as each other, not same as yours!   I do feel J's discomfort with his doing the belly dance!  LOL!  Mine didn't like mine after I had the op.  Mighty thoughtful of them!   But I guess it is the oddness of the device that throws em off mentally.  So they stay away from it.  Anyway, they do love standing in my lap when I'm sitting, kneading my thighs.  Its all cool till they are both standing there!  LOL!   And their paw pads can get so COLD!   They do stay off my belly, but when they think its time for me to get up they ain't shy about sniffing around my ears and face.  That bugs me enough to wake me up.  Heh!

Well, my 'little gabarit' cat is just 7,7 pounds if I made good calculations (the second is the taller and just 6,6 pounds ). When I read 18 pounds :panic: I'm not sure we have this kind of cats in France, or maybe with Mancoon.

I have no idea what my cat's parentage is except that one was likely black and the other one probably a tiger stripe. Those are the color cats to breed if you want a tortoiseshell (possibly). Any breed of cat can be a tortie but the parents have to be those colors. I've often wondered if she has Maine Coon in her, since she is so big and has the long hair.

Just weighed Watanuki, a bit more accurately this morn and he is more of a 14# :thud:

Which explains why it can be quite uncomfortable when he gets on my belly and chest and does his, "I am just trying to get comfortable dance."

I am certainly not fat by any definition of the word but neither do I have rock hard abs :tearlaugh:

My first tortoiseshell, Tania (like the sister of the mouse Fievel :psycho: ) was a cat with a lot of Bretagne origins. They are little cats compared to others in France. Her mother was 3 colors, but in place of black she was white.

Giroflée, the present tortoiseshell, is a little gabarit, but with a short back, maybe a non finished growth. I don't know at all her origins for breed. She is just "european cat" according her carnet.  :shrug:

After seeing Bobcats up close, I am glad none of mine ever got that big.   My two are reckoned to be mid size cats.  Ray yours would be a big one. J your Watanuki is still a mid size.  But he isn't grown yet is he?
Just wait, heh!

I never picked a Bobcat up, but the look of them says between 30 and 40 pounds.   Dat a big puddy tat!
Like that kitten I gave my friends wife way back there.  He got up to about 30 pounds.   For a domestic that was a BIG cat.  Lots of hair too!  BIG head and paws.   I am honestly glad he was hers!!!
