We Are Not Average!

I read that the average weight for a domestic cat is between 8 and 11 pounds. So, let's do an experiment! My Mommeh usually weighs us on a baby scale about once a month to make sure we are not gaining or losing weight, since this can be an early sign of a medical problem. Our weight varies by only a few ounces each time because we eat the same amount of foods every day. I will get on the scale first!
I'm not sure if you can read this, but I weigh 7 pounds and 1 ounce today!
Let's see how much Harley weighs. Hop on the scale, Harley!
Harley weighs 12 pounds and 1 ounce today!
I weigh less than average, and Harley weighs more than average. I think that this proves we are not average cats!

90 Notes for Daisy:

gemmak said...

But you wouldn't want to be average Daisy, you are special! :)

Whitey said...

Since Gandalf and Grayson just went to the vet, Whitey knows just what they weigh. Gandalf weighed 13 pounds and 12 ounces and Grayson weighed 11 pounds 3 ounces. Grayson's weight was the same as last year, and the year before... he hardly ever changes.

But Whitey? Whitey iz a little "fluffier" than mai wuz last May. Mom has not weighed me yet. Mai think mai iz above average. Iz gud, right?

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Never for one moment did we think that either of you would be average!

And by the way, Daisy, I weight exactly the same as you! Yuu-Chan is a bit lighter as he is still a kitten at 8 months. We haven't weighed Sei-Chan recently.

Purrs,
Tama-Chan

Merlin (and Abba-Dabba!) said...

Oh my! I weight 20 pounds, but that is because I am a Maine Coon. I am really long and tall too. I make my baby sister look really tiny!

~ Merlin

Huffle Mawson said...

Nocat could ever say that you two are average!

Alasandra said...

Socks would be the only one of the cats here that would fall within the average weight he weighs 10#, Scylla now weighs 14# and Artemisia weighs 3#.

Fenris is below average for his breed but he weighs 63#. The average for a male GP is 100+#

We think you are both purrfect the way you are Daisy & Harley. ~AFSS

Marg said...

Daisy, I thought you looked kind of small. There is nothing wrong with small. One of our best sisters was very tiny all her life. She never weighed more than 6 pounds. Harley really is a big boy. How are Harley's ulcers or whatever he had, doing??? I hope better.

Eric and Flynn said...

Uh oh, we aren't average either. When mum last weighed us in the New Year, I, Flynn, was 16lbs. That is my usual winter weight. In summer I am between 14 and 15 lbs. Mum likes me best at 15lbs because I get a bony butt when I an 14lbs.
Eric was 23lbs. He has a flabby tummy and mum would like him to be 19lbs. He is tall and long so he wouldn't look good if he was lighter than that. Mum keeps trying to get some weight off him and he doesn't eat as much as me, but it doesn't work.

Furkidsmom said...

If you add your two weights together, is the average average???

We're not average either...we Birman girls are below average and Tamir is way ABOVE average!!

Juanita Tortilla said...

Hi Daisy! You're the first Devon Rex I've ever met. (Nice to meet you!)
7 pounds and 1 ounce? There's still room to grow, don't worry!

Fluffy weighs well over 15 pounds. He is one big guy! Have you met Fluffy yet? (Sometimes he makes appearances on my blog.)

Cory said...

You 2 are definitely not average! My momma Ellie and I are usually around 7-8 pounds, Bennette is 8 pounds...and then there is Ginger, Nigel and Madison. Ginger is 15 pounds, Nigel 18 pounds and Madison 16 pounds!! Jonesie and Cecilia are right in the middle at about 11 pounds.

Percy the Cat said...

Our mum weighs us sometimes too, especially Pandora as she is very small (about your size Daisy) and she sometimes has tummy troubles.

I weigh a very mancatly 18lbs, so I am definitely not average either! :)

Cindy said...

You're both just right!

The Monkeys said...

We knew you weren't average even before you got on the scale, Daisy!

JD at I Do Things said...

I think you are both perfect, just as you are! And you're lucky to have a Mommeh who is so careful about your weight.

-d ma said...

no argument here... we've always known the two of you are way not average.

CCL Wendy said...

Oh, definitely! I could have told you that even without the weigh-in! You two are definitely not average in any weigh, shape or form!

You are unusually gorgeous and funnier than the average cat. (To me being called average is actually an insult!).

None of my 3-Ds are average either when it comes to weight -- Domino is small like you, and Dante and Dylan are like 21 and 14 lbs. respectively!

i beati said...

My cats are all overweight. Even though they have a big outside playhouse with vines and hanging toys and all. The biggest is Mello - 20 pounds

Puppy on a Roomba said...

Daisy, you are a dainty curly girl cat and Harley is a big strapping man cat. There is nothing average about either of you and that is a good thing! I'm not average either, because I don't has a tail!

Monty Q. Kat said...

Average is dull. Spoken by a manly mancat.

Flabby mancat, really.

Hey!

Mr. Hendrix said...

We knew you weren't average before you even got on the scale!
Last time I was at the VET I weighed 13lbs 6oz.
I think all us kitties come in different shapes and sizes so how can anyone say what is "average?"

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Daisy! I weigh exactly what you weigh! I am not average either!

Angel and Kirby said...

You two will never be average! You are extra special!

Grace said...

Yes, but if you average you weight and Harley's weight then it comes out average - but we are only talking weight here, NOT beauty and talent and intelligence - in which case you are way above average - both of you.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

We knew you guys weren't average cats, Daisy. For one thing, average cats don't hang out with talking clay people.

The Furry Kids said...

Dennis the Vizsla's comment cracked us up! We think you guys are way above average! :)

Cat of Nine Tales said...

Average Shmaverage!! You two are not just extra ordinary, you're EXTRAODINARY!
But you knew that already and I'm just agreeing.

Busby and Raymond said...

No way you two are average!

jenianddean said...

I don't think anyone would accuse you of being average. You are so tiny. I think my sister Maggie is the only average one in our house. The rest of us are above average.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Well I could have told you you were not average cats!

wedding gifts said...

Hey Daisy you are not average, you are the best. I can guarantee you that no one would disagree with me. You look awesome.

Cat Street Boyz said...

Great reminder......we must watch our weight! Toy weighs the most but he has a strong muscle mass. He is always climbing, running and playing. Teak & Tang are the lightest but Tinker has been to the Vet recently so we know he weighs 11.3 lbs and Mom likes walking around with him on her shoulders. (=^Y^=)

Your Daily Cute said...

...but together, your average is just right. A perfect pair you two make!

Yoggi said...

I suppose you are not average in anything! You are just special!

BeadedTail said...

We already knew you weren't average Daisy! We just didn't know that Harley weighs 5 lbs more than you. Now that's a big little brofur!

Sparkle said...

I am not average either - I weigh a little under 6 lbs., or as my human says, I weigh "less than six lbs. soaking wet," which I don't find funny at all. Binga is usually around 12 lbs., and Boodie, for all her fluff, is a little less, around 11, so they are average cats!

Keisha said...

I think u is awesome cats, and u is loaded with win. :)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Of course you're not average. You're special.

catsynth said...

Who would want to be average? :)
Weight-wise Luna is average (about 10lbs), but she is still exceptional, too.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

You two are above average in all ways. That's what makes you so special :)

Junior and Orion said...

You two are lightweights!!! WEll, we don't top Harleys weight by much, but we are around 14 pounds each! And no, niether one of you are average. ;)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh we have always known you aren't average Daisy! It is interesting to read that - I think we have 2 that are average and 2 that are bigger, and to me the 2 average (both around 10 lbs) seem very tiny! I guess after Floyd, who was 24 at his biggest, anything seems tiny!

Anna said...

No, you're right Daisy. You and Harley are definitely NOT average cats in any way!
Hugs
Anna

Baby Patches said...

Glogirly and Katie said...

You two are anything BUT average! I always considered myself to be shapely and svelte. Alas, according to the scale, I'm average. Fooey. I'm going to ignore it. I'm good at ignoring.

Karen Jo said...

I always knew that you and Harley were not average, Daisy. You are both way better than that. Herman weighed 10.45 pounds the last time he was at the vet, but he has put on some weight since then, so I am guessing he weighs about 11 pounds.

Skeezix the Cat said...

Wow, Daisy, I didn't realize yoo wade a haff pownd more than me! I'd better bulk up!

Michelle said...

LOL, yep you are not average Daisy, but it has a lot more to do with other things than weight.

Maureen said...

Nope, neither of you are average, that's for sure... but you both are AWESOME!

Journal Kittens said...

Fleur is 7,5 pounds and Mashiro is 8 pounds. ;)

Melinda said...

That's because you are a delicate little flower of a cat, and Harley is a big man cat now! Certainly not average cats in any respect. My Henry weighs in at 16 pounds! He's a big boy, but not fat, he's a Maine Coon, and they're just big beautiful kitties! He has a crush on you, too. he looks at your picture whenever I look at your blog!

The Furry Bambinos said...

That must mean that both of you are better than average cats!
