My Cat is "Pile-Drivingly-Heavy!"

    It's an indoor cat, neutered, reasonably well exercised but plump, rotund, affluent, fat. Are some indoor cats prone to blobulence and others not?

    The reason my cat stays indoors is because outdoor cats tend to meet other cats that are rife with pestilence and vermin I prefer not to have invading my house.

    How are TB'ers indoor cats faring?

    In my house, pets don't wear clothes. But that may just be me opressing them. :bag:

    I have a cat named Mosh, she weighs about 30 lbs. Her sister is about half the weight, and seemingly eats twice as much, and does not have worms or other digestive order to explain it.

    They are about 14-15 years old and still are alert and playful.

    In my house, where the pets pay no taxes, leave fur and litter box deposits around for me to clean up, and live a slovenly lifestyle, torment and humiliation directed at them is a necessity.
  5. My cat weighs about 18 pounds, and he is an indoor cat.

    He's about 8 years old and is still active and alert. Not playful, but still lively.

    the politically correct terminology is "gravitationally challenged Feline-American"
  8. Awwww, that does look like a great cat.

    But the "gravitationally challenged" feline set might want to fit in thus: "Pile-drivingly-heavy" set.(?)

    My cat's a Persian, she's in good shape, pretty skinny if anything, runs around and sleeps in my gigbag in my closet alot. I can't pick her up. I got my bro to adopt a stray cat who was more like a panther or "big cat" than anything, in fact it's probably one of the ones form England that migrated here. It practically ate my brothers couch and broke a few doors, he beat my brother and his roomate up a few times too...We tried turning it into an indoor cat but it didnt work, but it is one pile drivingly heavy cat. (I can barely lift it up)
  11. My family doesn't have any cats personally, but my friends grandparents cat weighed in at 32 pounds, he's a giant ball of kitty fat that can't make it up more than 5 or 6 stairs at a time, but he's still cool.

    After the vet weighed him, she said something close to "your cat is the 1 ton man of cats"

    He's going on a diet, trying to lose 20lbs, and is in a contest to see which cat can lose the most weight for some cat magizine.

    My cat is a grumpy old man at 11. He's like "Feed me," and then "Let me out," and then "Let me in," and then "Feed me," ... and that's pretty much it.

    fraublugher - that is one of the funniest things I've seen in awhile...there for one(or 20) people are going to find that horrible offensive and start complaining about it

    P. Aaron - Is it just me....or is your cat somehow defying gravity in that pic?
  14. My 2 cats are somewhere older than 12 or 13, and in thier younger years were somewhat portly. One was in the 11 pound range the other was around 12. The kids made fun of her being fat, and being kids we re-wrote the lyrics to Spongebob Squarepants:

    Who's the prettiest kitty in town?
    Pudge Monster White Paws!
    Who's so pretty and big and round?
    Pudge Monster White Paws!


    She got sick last winter and lost a lot of weight, but she's doing much better, she's shy of 10 or so- a good healthy weight for her.

    P. Your cat lives in MI. the fattest state in the nation, that excuse works for me anyway! :p
  16. it's a dog I know

    but here is my pug

    he is the fatness of 3
  17. Well, Mr. Montgomery is around 1½ stones (21lbs), so is no lightweight. I think he's trying to develop his own gravitational field…

    I think "White with Tabby" cats have a preference for being upside-down... here is my "iMac" (I worked @ Apple when he was dumped in the parking lot during my shift @ about 7 months old) He's gotten to about 16-17 lbs (he's due for a checkup) and we now call him "Papa Gund"
