SIGNS OF A HEALTHY SIZE OR WEIGHT

  • PADDING icon

    PADDING


    When you hold your cat, you should be able to feel their ribs and a healthy little layer of padding around them.

    FIT


    The padding around your cat should feel similar to what's on the back of your hand – a little elastic, but close to your cat's muscles.

    FLUCTUATION


    Just like their owners, your cat’s size may change a bit with age or as seasons change. A little variation is normal, as long as the changes aren’t rapid.

YOUR CAT’S SIZE IS UNIQUE

Depending on their breed, life stage and lifestyle, your cat's size is part of what makes them the amazing little animal they are.

    Most cats fall into a middle-sized category,  including Persian, Burmese and American Shorthair cats of a healthy size tend to be between 4-7Kg.

  • sph-claims-3-size

    Larger cat breeds like Main Coon, Ragamuffin and Siberian cats at a healthy weight regularly reach the upper teens, between 7-9 Kg.
