How Much Does Your Ragdoll Weigh?

How Much Does Your Ragdoll Weigh?

I am always asked this question on YouTube because Charlie and Trigg look a lot bigger than they actually are.  And well, compared to a 7 lb. cat, they are a lot bigger.

It’s curious because I have always heard that Ragdolls, neutered males, are supposed to weigh between 15-20 lbs.

Here are the weights of neutered male Ragdolls in my immediate family:

  • Rags – 13 lbs
  • Caymus – 17 lbs
  • Murphy – 12 lbs
  • Charlie – 14 lbs
  • Trigg – 14 lbs.

Somehow I think that 15-20 lbs average is a little off.

Also, “How much do they weigh?” really isn’t an accurate assessment of how big they are.  For example, a kitty could have a small body frame and be obese and weigh 14 lbs. or s/he could be tall, long and lean at 14 lbs.  There’s a big difference.

So that begs the question – How much does your Ragdoll weigh?  And how would you describe his or her body type?

    Fiona was 10 lbs and change at her last vet appointment in May of 2012. Her growth was stunted as a kitten as she could not digest her Royal Canin kitten food (took several vet appointments and one awesome vet tech to figure this out) so she’ll always be a bit small.

  2. Nanette Harms says:

    My nearly 11 month old male weighs 13.6 lbs! I’d be curious to know when they stop growing!

  3. Sue Rogers says:

    My 9 month old male weighs 13.8 lbs and growing!

  4. jerk says:

    Dex weighs 22 lbs. no lie. He has a *little* fat pooch that swings, but its mostly skin since he lost weight (he used to be upwards of 27 pounds at one time)

    since switching to wet/raw food, he goes from 19 to 22 pounds. Some weeks hes lazy, some hes super active.

    • sondi moore says:

      Congrats on the weight loss, I am sure his knees feel much better. If is mostly eats dry food, cut him back a little bit more and add 1/2 can wet food (if he will eat it). Eating dry food only is like us eating potato chips only. He’ll proabaly loose at least another lb. or 2.

  5. Julie says:

    Mooshu…who is 2 1/2 years old…is 14 pounds. But pretty sure 12 of that is FLUFFY FUR! Hahaha!

  6. Brita says:

    Annabella weighed 8 lb, 6 oz, when we first brought her home at 9 months. Two years later, she still weighs the same!! She’s just going to be petite, which is fine with me. She eats like a piglet and is healthy, and that’s what counts.

  7. joe marks says:

    We have 2 males/neutered ragdolls; both 2 years old. Merlin is 12 pounds and Magic is a little over 13. They are very active..

  8. Ashley says:

    My 6 month old Monroe just passed 9 pounds, and he looks like he’s about to go through another growth spurt (his feet just keep getting bigger!).

  9. Kate says:

    Mine help bring the average up…Romeo is 18 pounds, Caesar is 22 pounds. (Yes, he needs to lose some weight!)

  10. Suzanne says:

    My male (blue point)is long and slender and he weighs 11.3 lbs. My female is shorter and chubby (blue bi-color), she is 11.6 lbs. It doesn’t sound chubby, but she was overweight already at 5 mo. (early spay result). I would have waited until she was 6 months, but she was done at 9 weeks. My male was neutered at 7 mo. My cat only vet says it’s sort of a problem, but better than the alternative of people breeding them.

  12. Megan says:

    My almost 3 year old, Duchess, is about 9 lbs. She has maintained that weight for a while now. She is very active and healthy, and she enjoys her meals (she lets me know if it is past mealtime!) She is just small!

  13. Laura Semerano says:

    Penny Marie weighs 8.3 pounds, her favorite treat is lowfat blueberry yogurt!

  14. Barbara McWright says:

    Bartok 11 yrs old weighs 23 lbs! He is big!
    Chloe 7 yrs old weighs about 20, has a triple thick coat and a huge tummy when she does the ragdoll flop!

  15. Sherri says:

    Jack is 19 months, He is 16.5 Lbs. When we gave him a bath recently we were shocked at how lean he is. He is really furry. He is a seal mitted.

  16. Diana says:

    Boomer’s weight, at 6 years old, fluctuates between about 16.5 and 17 lbs. He’s a tall, long boy (with tons of fur), and although he looks positively *immense* when he flops and displays his belly, when he stands up and I smoosh all his fur down, there’s no saggy abdominal area to be found. He’s quite active, but we’ve learned to always measure his food; at his one-year check-up, he tipped the scales at 18.3 pounds(!), which was clearly too much.

  17. Jessica says:

    Mine is a 7 month old male, but he only weighs 8-9 pounds. He has really cut down on his food after I switched to all-wet canned/raw diet. He really does not like the wet food (and I’ve tried every grain-free brands!) and is just not eating enough calories (less than 1/4 the daily amt)… sigh. I might go back to adding dry food so that he gets the calories/nutrition he needs to grow! After his 1-year bday, I’m thinking about going back to all-wet food.

    • Kali says:

      Try EVO, my girls (1 rag doll, and 1 siamese calico) love it! they are gorgeous, healthy, great coats, and no issues at all. Just started feeding it to the siamese mix because she is pregnant. She is getting the cat/kitten formula and my rag doll steals it every chance she gets. Grain free and all natural. High protein, my vet recommended it and was he ever right.

  18. Sondi Moore says:

    My 17 year old Baby weighs 13 lbs and has for years. I love every ounce of her.

  19. JoAnn Schmidt says:

    Ryan, my six month old Ragdoll kitten, weighs 5 1/4 lbs. He’s as light as a feather, and just fascinated by watching the screen on my laptop!

  20. Kali says:

    I have two of my own. our 14 year old male, Bubba is 15 pounds, and our 4 year old(we think she was supposed to be a spayed female 15 pounds, lady got her cats confused apparently, she has been in heat 3 times) female, Lulu we got about 6 months ago is a little thing at 7 1/2-8 pounds. LIttle fluffies. lol

  21. Daylyn says:

    AnnaBelle weighs about 17 pounds and is 11 months old.

  22. Coinneach Fitzpatrick says:

    Miss Charlie-foof weighs 11.7. Girls are supposed to be 10-15 according to TICA, so she’s actually on the small side. Which is hi-larious when I see her next to my 8-pound Persian.

  23. Wendy says:

    I think my Lucy must be the smallest Ragdoll reported here — she is just under 7 pounds! She was a rescue cat who was skin and bones when I adopted her (she was 2 years old at the time). She is a very dainty eater and no matter what I do, she stays below 7 pounds. She is now 12 years old and is happy, healthy, kittenish, and playful so I don’t worry about her size too much. As long as she remains healthy that’s all that matters.

  24. Leanne says:

    Mr Darcy who is a neutered male and will be 4 in May weighs just over kilos which is over 15 half pounds.

    He has been consistant around this date for a while and the vet says he is not overweight at all, he’s just a big cat.

  26. MeLinda Hughes says:

    Bastien weighs 16 pounds at 5 years; Saxon weighs between 12-14; little Roanoke only weighs 10, BUT we have had foster Ragdolls that weighed from a tiny 8 pounds for Purl (purebred girl) to a 24 pound purebred male that came from a cattery in California. His “girlfriend” (they were both altered, of course) weighed a hefty 20 pounds, the most I have ever seen in a female cat. PERIOD.

  27. Karen says:

    My 3 year old male Mulsanne is 12 pounds of cat power! Amusing every day. I do wonder if that very early kitten neutering affected his growth.

    What a variety in weights between cats of the same breed. Wow!

  28. Emily says:

    Higgins is an approximately 6 year old shelter rescue and he averages around 17 pounds. He’s a lovable dufuss.

  29. Kathie says:

    Milo is 4 yrs old and 14 lbs.

  30. Patricia Holland says:

    My Ragdoll will turn a year in 2 weeks, He is just 10 lbs. I sure hope he gets bigger, He is also shedding so bad I think I could make me a coat from his fur. I feed him Natures Logic canned as it has no grains in it, I also feed him 4 little mice a day.

  31. Martha says:

    I have a male Ragdoll, “Whitie,” that is 8 months of age. He weighed in at my vet last week at 12 pounds. He is long and muscular and was the largest of his litter when he was born on July 14, 2012.

  32. Jessica says:

    My four year old male, Frank Sinatra is only 9-10 pounds. He was the runt and looks a lot smaller than most male ragdolls, he is also not a big eater. The only food he does like is freeze dried chicken. He sort of likes science diet dental formula, which my mother fed her cat, but I am currently switching him to all wet food-it is kind of a trial.

  33. Eszti & Phineas says:

    Phineas weighs almost exactly 6 kg, that means a little more than 13 pounds. He is 1 year and a month old, neutered male :).

  34. Joan Frost says:

    My 2 yr. old Ragdoll, Nicky, weighs 15 lbs.

  35. I have a 2 year old Neutered Male named Sammy who weighs about 13 pounds. He’s got a pooch, but it’s getting smaller with the new food I have been feeding him. 🙂 I call him my Bathroom buddy since he is always in there when I am there.

  36. Silvana says:

    My male kitten is 17 weeks and weighs close to 5 lbs. Is that normal? My first pet, so I’m a nervous mommy. Just LOVE the ragdoll.

  37. SUE B says:

    Our gorgeous George was a very sick cat, we got him last October and he weighed a mere 6.6lbs. He has cat flu and is doing very well he now weighs 8lbs 6ozs, approx 3 years old. He is so adorable!

  38. Gayle says:

    My 5 year old female Ragdoll weighs only 10.8 lbs but she hasn’t been a very healthy cat.

    • Suzanne says:

      Both my Ragdolls weigh exactly 10.8 lbs and are very healthy, in fact the female who is short and squat is a tad chunky, even at that. My male is long and lean, but also very healthy. Both came from big stock, and just are not huge cats. And both are better then average looking Ragdolls! Neither was a ‘runt’ either.

  39. ed says:

    have 2 males. chico is 3.5 years old flame point and is 20 pounds. his brother dandy is 2.5 years old and weighs 11 pounds. totally different cants. both have the coats and the blue eyes but chico is text book ragdoll..goes limp etc.. and dandy is a hunter does not like to be carried. cant be alone but does not like to be crowded. dandy is a very, very long cat.. the vet was stunned as this cat walked in the office. long, long tail but very athletic.

  40. Rachelle says:

    Davidson (“Davi”) is 13.5 (neut. male). I thought he felt heavier than that and was closer to my 20 lb dog’s weight. He did lose weight after his dental 3 weeks ago, but is gaining it back.

    Unfortunately, he cannot tolerate any high protein foods. He will puke it up EVERY time. (And that includes the dog food he steals, which is high protein.) Here I thought I was being good to buy him Wellness Core & Grain Free wet food (spendy) but I dealt with puking for months before a vet finally told me to put him on prescription wet food. We tried one brand of rx food and I had to throw half of it out because he didn’t like it. Switched him to Science Diet’s I/D formula and he did great for about 3 weeks, and now he’s puking again. I just don’t know what to do!

    • Silvana says:

      We have a 7month old ragdoll weighs about 10 lbs. I’m now happy with his weight. I had wrote earlier concerned of his weight, but now he is growing beautifully, a purr machine and very playful. Our problem is that Tommy has a very soft stool which causes a “messy bum” for the last Four weeks. We brought him to the vet three weeks ago he is on FortiFlora -a probiotic – which has kind of helped but not fully helped. We now think it may be the high protein grain free food Orijen. We are thinking of changing his food which would have less protein. What are you now feeding your ragdoll and besides puking did your cat have other symptoms. We are also thinking of going to the vet and providing a stool sample to rule out a parasite, , which our vet doesn’t feel is the issue since he’s an indoor cat and has had all his shots. I

      • Colleen Duggin says:

        We have only ever fed Instinct. It is grain free kibble and the one we buy has raw pieces in it. SASHA LOVES IT. We use their wet food too. He loves it! Stools are normal and we just weighed him in at 11 pounds at 6 1/2 months. He’s got big paws and larger bone structure. If I had to guess, 18-20# will probably be his full weight.

      • Cindy says:

        When I inherited my Raggies from my brother, they had wicked diarrhea. It took several tries at different foods and finally found one that worked. I also found out that they both have bladder issues, so they are on a CD diet. Don’t give up. Try different foods.

    • Geordie Alan says:

      Hi we have a ragdoll cat age 21 months called Teddy as we are out working all the time we introduced a same age female ragdoll called crystal from quality stock,
      A month later we moved house as teddy was big and fluffy we did not pick up straight away but he lost almost kilo before we really noticed how ill he looked and was not eating, he lost his furry thick coat and Maine and crystal got bigger , she is now 5kg perfect,
      After trips to vets because teddys poo,s were soggy with blood in them all the time,she checked him for parasites and treated him with concentrated doses, but he was still bleeding from colon
      He had blood tests from neck and found a number of issues inside that needed further tests, very worrying we hand fed ted (force fed) every morning before work for 4 months he was taking food but no gains,
      Then one morning we gave him raw meat what the vets recommended not to, as she believed this was the cause of the illness to begin with.
      It was like the lights were switched on he wolfed it down, so every morning teddy as raw meat biscuits available all day and a fish based commercial cat food mixed with tuna every evening,
      boom teddy has gained almost a kilo in 5 weeks his coat is returning to thick and fluffy and body is changing back to how it should be, while he was ill he just looked like a slender moggy.
      Bleeding has ceased in his colon ,poos care sometimes sloppy and sometimes normal with no mucus or blood he is almost back to 6kg and still needs another kilo on as still looks slender,
      His mental state has improved and he now stays by us all the time instead of lying in a corner somewhere on his own.

      Our thoughts are this a new cat brought into the house and moving house affected his mind and he got depressed stopped eating and we didn’t see it in time as crystal little piggy ate her food and his so was not noticed until almost to late to recover him.

      Anyhow ragdoll s can get depressed with change , they need large amounts of fibre in there diet mainly from quality dry foods if not spoon it into them forcefully , after a few days they learn to accept hand feeding science diet ID is what we kept teddy going with also with a mix of pumpkin mashed into a fine mix so can be swallowed easily we also soaked and turned science diet dry food into a soggy paste and fed him that with pumpkin also.

      I’ve gone on a bit here but don’t take your eye of the ball , take action I’d needed

  41. Lisa says:

    Gee alotof replys on the weight thing.umm Murphys weight was about 12 .8lbs jan 2013,Doctor said he should not get any larger,and did not matter if he was a Ragdoll.I have noticed lately that he has gained weight not sure how much,hes eating more dry food since we got the baby Ragdoll for him .Even know he loves his new buddy he seems to be snacking on dry food as much as possible,I guess I need too control that situation quickly.My husband has been commenting alot about his weight gain .I Thought he just looked big next to the kitten.But he seems to be at the food bowls with the high energy 3 month old Ragdoll .Mabey competing for his share of the dry food?

    • Cindy says:

      My Neo & Seven are brother and sister. She can free feed (pick at food all day long if left out), but Neo is like a vacuum cleaner. If it’s out, he eats, so I cannot leave food out. You may have to set a feeding schedule and when they leave their bowls, put the food where they can’t get to it.

  42. Elisa says:

    Our male ragdoll Santtu weighs only 10.6 lbs (4.8 kg), and he’s already 3 years and seven months old – meaning he only has five months to go until that “full size and weight” date. He’s a bit of a picky eater, he only eats fish.

  43. Cheryl says:

    My boy Mylo is a 5 month old neutered seal mitted ragdoll he already weighs 8.1 pound!! I think hes going to be a big boy he literally eats everything in sight! Hes not fat tho just a big boy.

  44. Louise Marie says:

    My Coco is very long and lean, 4 yrs old and only 3.9 kilos (8.6lbs) she is a fussy eater with a small appetite.
    Snowdrop is very petite, she doesn’t have a long body, she looks like a little fluff ball, she is only 3.2 kilos (7.1lbs), she will only eat dry food.

  45. kira says:

    My 3/4 ragdoll, 1/4 highland lynx (looks like pure ragdoll) is 10.4 lbs at 11 months.

  46. Sarah says:

    My female ragdoll is 5 month 1 week and weighs 6 and 3/4 lbs. When we got her at 12 weeks she was under weight and only 2 lbs. She has more than caught up. Is that very common?

  47. Angel says:

    I am glad this came up in my search. My pretty boy is 6 months old and about 8.5-9lbs. I haven’t had a particularly large breed cat before so i wanted to gauge whether this was normal or if i should switch his food. Though I dont see him camped out at his dish or anything. So far he sounds to be about normal. Which is a relief. I want him to be healthy even if he does get large.

  48. Colleen Duggin says:

    I’m glad I found this thread. I was curious if Sasha was within the range for ragdoll. He is 6 1/2 months old, was neutered when we got him, and weighs 11 pounds already. He has big kitty paws and larger boning. I think he will be a good sized adult male. He was about 3-4 pounds when we got him at 3 months. Does the weight gain slow down for the 2nd half of the first year? My female orphan kitty was 12# in her prime, but she was not a ragdoll. SASHA is our first and he has all of the wonderful traits of a floppy ragdoll.

  49. Colleen Duggin says:

    I’m glad I found this thread. I was curious if Sasha was within the range for ragdoll. He is 6 1/2 months old, was neutered when we got him, and weighs 11 pounds already. Does the weight gain slow down any between 6-12 months?

    • Dee Scherzer says:

      Colleen, I’m glad you gave Sasha’s weight. We have an 8 month old male, “Milo” who is around 13 lbs already! He could not tolerate Royal Canin food (soft, stinky stools!). He loves his food, but we measure is dry to 1 cup/day + a small amt. of canned meat for breakfast (like 1 TBSP mixed with his dry food moistened w/water & 1 TBSP of meat at supper. He is our first Ragdoll, so visiting this site helps me to learn more about the Ragdoll. We sure enjoy him! 🙂

  50. Ashley says:

    My 7 month old boy is at least 11 pounds… I think he may have grown a little, but I haven’t weighed him in a week. I am also glad that I came across across this thread (as others have mentioned before me). I’ve never had a ragdoll before (he’s my first!), and i just just wanted to see if it was normal for him to be so big already.. He already weighs more than my other two adult cats. He follows me everywhere..he does have a little tummy pooch, but I don’t think he’s fat. He’s my little buddy 🙂 I I just want to make sure he’s healthy and not fat

  51. Jordyn says:

    Glad I found this! My neutered boy who turns one next week is around 14lbs. He doesn’t seem big to me but my vet said he needs to stop gaining weight. I was thinking we was already overweight but I feel better after reading this. I think my vet just isn’t familiar with how big ragdolls can get.

  52. Tammy says:

    My little guy Teddy, who was neutered at 12 weeks, is a whopping 9.4 lbs at 10 1/2 months. I don’t think he will be as big as his buddy Gracie, my mom’s ragdoll, who is 2 1/2 years old and weighs 16 lbs.

  53. RsRagdoll says:

    My Ragdoll male kitten is only 5.5 months and he’s already 9.5 lbs! He’s a little tank 🙂

  54. Barb says:

    My Chloe is 9 yrs. old and weighs 14.6 lbs. She was a “gift” because the owner was moving to FL and couldn’t take her with her!! I really think the owner never bonded with Chloe! It has taken over 2 yrs. to have Chloe come out from under my bed. She will eat and poop when she needs to, but no social skills! The previous owner had the “Litter Maid” litter box, so Chloe does not know how to cover up her litter. High maintenance Ragdoll! And…her poop stinks! she shares her litter box with my 14 yr. old black long haired domestic cat “Bandi”. It has taken 2 years for the two to become friends. All is well and I love them to death. They are good travelers – harness trained and do well in my RV on long distance trips.

    • Suzanne says:

      My female’s poop also stinks…she knows how to cover it up, but leaves it on top as a ‘gift’, then runs around “Look at my poop, look at my poop!!!” She likes to leave one LONG one if she can. So proud of herself!! Miss Violet♥♥♥ Thankslove bug! I SEE IT!!!!

  55. Roberta says:

    My senior cat Dinky, age 14 thus month, is underweight at 10.4 pounds. He weighed 18 pounds in his youth. Handsome Fella, age 10, weighs 22 lbs.

  56. Hi, Jenny!

    Great post! Our Miss Pink Sugar girl weighs in around 14 pounds. She’ll be 20 months old on June 7th. 🙂

    Big hugs!

    Patti & Pink Sugar 🙂 <3

    • Patti Johnson says:

      *****UPDATE*****
      Hi, Jenny!

      Our Miss Pink Sugarbelle now weighs in at 15 pounds. She’ll be 3 years old on October 7, 2015.

      I would describe her body type as long and solid.

      Big hugs!

      Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3

  57. Suzanne says:

    I have 2 unrelated Rags, male and female 5 & 6 yrs old. My male is very long, his dad was 22 lbs, he weighs 10.8 lbs. My female is short and squat, and weighs exactly the same 10.8 lbs, and she’s a bit chunky at that. I wanted huge cats, but this is how mine turned out. My female comes from a line of regular weight cats (13-17lbs) WEIRD!!

  58. jim says:

    BENTLEY 3YRS 17 LBS MALE
    BELLA 3YRS 16.9 LBS FEMALE
    BEATRIX 3YRS 10 LBS FEMALE

    There father was 24+ lbs and mother around 13 lbs

    it is said that a UN-nuetered male will be very large and neutered male much smaller.

  59. Lynette says:

    I have had Izzy from the age of about 4 ’til now. He will be 11 next month. He has always weight between 17 and 18 pounds. I have had to get him a lion cut a three times… the hair and the hairballs during spring and early summer were more than I could live with some years… and he’s not a fat cat.

  60. Lisa Staffa says:

    you can’t really know their full adult weight until they stop growing and changing colors around 4 years of age, give or take.
    Louie weighed a robust 21 lbs from age 4 till about age 10. Then he got sick and we needed to pull his teeth. So now he is 12 and only weighs a little over 11 lbs. But he is happy and healthy non the less 🙂

  61. ChristyB says:

    Prossimo weighs 16+ pounds.

    December 2012 vet guessed his age at 2-5 years and he was 15#.

    I’m guessing that he’s on the younger side so I suspect that he will continue to grow for a bit. However, my suspicions could be wrong!

    He could have gained weight due to normal growth or it could have been that he was underweight when he arrived. When he first got here, he ate 4 meals a day for a while. He’s gone through 3 or 4 periods where he will eat double of his typical daily intake which lasts anywhere from 3-8 weeks at a time.

  62. Cindy says:

    My 5 year old neutered male, Neo, weighs in at 13.5 lbs, but he is about 1 lb overweight (per the vet) even though you can still feel his ribs. He is also a fluff ball with cottony hair and looks a lot bigger than he really is. Even his face is fluffy. Seven, Neo’s spayed sister, weighs in at a little over 8.5 lbs and is not a fluff ball. Her fur is super silky.

  63. Jim Manns says:

    My buddy Murphy is a blue mitted male ragdoll who just turned 14 yrs old,and he weighs 17lbs,seems fit to me

  64. sondi moore says:

    Baby maintained an 11 lb. weight until she was diagnosed, in 2013, with bladder cancer. She’s almost 10 months into this condition and only takes one, anti-inflamatory medication 2x week. Now she hangs out at 8.5 lbs and is 18 years old. she still looks 14 so we don’t tell her how old she really is.

  65. Donna says:

    Our beautiful boy Oscar was 1 year old at the end of May and currently weighs 4.98kg which I think is about 11 lbs. He eats well and very happy, active and healthy.

  66. Finn – Male 1 yr. 15 lbs
    Bug – Male 10 mos 14 lbs

    Thank God for this thread! I was recently getting a bit concerned about my 7 1/2 month old Giorgio who eats on average 4, sometimes 5 cans of food per day! He does not eat any dry food, only cans and he eats the whole can, not just some of it!. This boy can eat and my guess is that he is around 12 lbs, having been weighed in at 10 + over a month ago. I was told by my ver, who has two Ragdolls of his own, that I can bring him in on a Sunday to check his weight in a few months, so I’ll be doing it pretty soon. I am afraid of him getting too fat, but he’s just a kitten and I don’t want to let him go hungry. I’ve had plenty of other cats in my life and after the initial 4-5 months, they’d eat 2 cans or so per day and all was well. Not this guy! He’s a bottomless pit! It was good to see other’s under a year old weigh as much or more than Giorgio. He doesn’t have worms and is perfectly fine and healthy. I ‘d like to avoid letting him get obese.

    Maya (spay female, 2 yrs old = 7.92 pounds
    Yaluc (neuter male, 3 1/2 yrs old = 7,48 pounds
    Taj (neuter male, 10 yrs old (RIP) = 20 pounds

    Both Yaluc and Maya need to gain weight…Maya eats like a piggy,and cleans up anything left over. Yaluc isn’t too interested in much food (seems to like only chicken)…have tried them on everything…going to increase wet food to twice a day…dry high protein food is always available. They are fairly active cats in the morning but pretty much nap the rest of the day. Vet says they are healthy but I feel bones and think they should be eating more.

    My Hawkeye is a 3 yr old neutered male, and weighs in at 13 lbs. He is active and likes to play every night with Da Bird. He nips my feet to let me know he wants to play. He also loves his “cheats”, but has to earn them by playing or using a cheat puzzle of some sort. I’m amazed that he weighs so much because during the rare times that we bathe him, he looks like a drowned rat under all of that fur. He eats wet canned food. I slipped and gave him a little bit of dry food we got as a sample and it gave him diahrrea (sp?). Ugh, not doing that again! he is our pride and joy.

    Cricket is 3 1/2 years old and she weighs 13.4 lbs. When she’s bathed, we see that she’s lean. But with her fur fluffed up, she looks huge.

  74. Linda Gerten says:

    Hello everyone 🙂 I have a 13 month old neutered male who just gained another 2 pounds in the last 3 months. He is now 14 lbs. The breeder told me she looks at the width of their butt bones and believes he will be a big boy like his daddy, 20-22 lbs. I’ve read that rag dolls will reach their full growth at 2 yrs. I have also seen 4 yrs.(?)

  75. Colleen Duggin says:

    Sasha turns 1 year on 6/10. He is a neutered male weighing in at 14.4 pounds. I understand he may not attain his full growth for another 2-3 years. He does very well on Instinct grain free kibble and Instinct limited ingredient wet catfood. He free feeds on the kibble and gets one 3 oz can of the wet food per day.

  76. Lisa says:

    Hope you will let us know the average weights this thread yields!

  78. Teresa says:

    Illaria Rose – 13 pounds, Ragdoll coming up on her 2nd birthday on June 24th
    Olivia Grace – 11 pounds, 2 years old and will be 3 on November 24th
    Mariposa – 12 pounds – Maine Coon about 10 years old – rescue

  79. Leanna says:

    Abbie is 6 years old and weighs 14.5 pounds.

  80. Wendy says:

    My Loki is 3 years old and weighs 13.5 pounds. He is a retired stud and was neutered shortly after his second birthday.

    When I got him last August he had been recently neutered (6 weeks previously) and weighed 10.5 pounds, so he’s put on 3 pounds since coming to live with me. He did seem to have a mini growth spurt a few months ago and he is a very solid kitty, just like you’d expect for a neutered male Ragdoll!

    Lucy, my sweet neutered female Ragdoll who died last summer at age 13, weighed barely 6 pounds. Imagine my shock the first time I picked up Loki after being used to carrying Lucy around.

  81. Dementia Boy says:

    At his prime, William weighed 19 lbs. plus change. When the dementia hit, his weight fluctuated between 17 and 23 lbs. because he’d either forget to eat or would forget that he had eaten. But 19 lbs. was William’s optimum weight. Because he was a cryptorchid, he was neutered late, so perhaps that contributed to his heft.

    I swear, William weighed at least 50 lbs. when he’d flat flop and couldn’t be moved. He thought this was jolly good fun because it usually resulted in spin the kitty.

  82. Nancy, H. says:

    My Sophie is nine & 1/2 years old and weighs 10.0 lbs. She has maintained this weight for sometime now. My Jedda is 1yr old and already weighs 16lbs. He is a large boned raggie. Our breeder says not to be too concerned about this because it will not be unusal for him to get to be over 20 lbs.
    we will see. He has his annual wellness visit next week.

  83. Ellen says:

    Loki weighs 11.5 lbs at almost 8 months. I hope he stops growing soon!

  84. JLSW says:

    Artemis, our big fluffy 7 year old, weighs 15 pounds. The vet says he is overweight but he flies around the house like a kitten!

  85. Lauren says:

    Hello. I have three Ragdoll cats.

    Finn, my seal bi-color and the biggest one, is a 13.2 pounds. Ty, my red Ragdoll, is 10.8 pounds, but he’s more built on the lithe side and Tasha, Finn’s half sister is almost 10 pounds and she’s still growing! She just turned one in early May.

    I want to say that these guys grow even after a year old. I don’t really know what the “average” is anymore. As long as you get your vet check-ups with your loved furry pals, monitor their portions of what food you give them (wet or dry) and setting aside to play with them every day at least 10-20 minutes, they will be super happy and healthy, too. 🙂

  86. Ragdoll Mommy says:

    Anya is 13lbs and Nico is 14lbs.

  87. Alora says:

    Bear Cat was 2 lbs when he came to live with us. Now at 5 months he is 6lbs 🙂 Growing like a weed.

  88. Fahad Al Ismail says:

    Lulu, My six months old seal mitted ragdoll, is about 11.8 lb.!! He’s not overweight at all (I actually think he’s kinda lean), but he’s really tall and wide-boned. I’m so excited to see how big he’ll get. I give him the best, most nutritious food possible so he can grows like tree. 😀

  89. Holly Hutt Viola says:

    My Miley is 14 lbs, and Sophie is 12 lbs. They are 9 and 8 yrs old respectively. I thought they were Fatty McFatFat. but i guess not, reading this site! They eat Purina urinary tract health dry food in a big bowl to nibble all day, and i give them wet food in the morning and night (i split 1 can – and they dont eat it, they just lick it for a snack. i end up with dry chunks of food at the end of the night)

  90. strikersmom says:

    At one year of age, 15 pounds 🙂

  91. Charlene A. McMullen says:

    Our Lulu who will be 10 on July 5 weighs 9 lbs.

  92. Boppin says:

    Our 4 1/2 year old ragdoll weighs 16 lbs. He doesn’t seem to be overweight, has a large frame, is very active and can jump WAY high. But the vet said he should lose 2 lbs. (I don’t necessarily agree).

  93. Wicket says:

    MY male, Loki, weighs 15.4 lbs and is 1 1/2 years old. I’ve heard that the don’t quit growing til about 3.

  94. Beth says:

    Both Gizmo and Moosie, my neutered male full-grown boys, averaged 17 or 18 pounds at their vet appointments. 15-20 pounds sounds right to me with my limited experience.

  95. Sheri Wertheimer says:

    Our Toby is about 3 1/2. He weighs approx. 15 lbs. he seems to still be growing slowly, mostly longer legs in the past year. Also his coat continues to darken ( chocolate mitted mink Lynx) and grow ever fluffier.

  96. JLSmithson says:

    Artemis weighs 15.5, Adam weighs 17, and Binkley weighs 12. They are all 8. Artemis used to be the big alpha but Adam has surpassed him.

  98. Karen Hughes says:

    Riley the Ragdoll is just over 4 years and weighs 14 pounds. He looks HUGE right now because he has his winter coat. Vet says he is “perfect”. 🙂 By comparison, our male Bengal, who is long and lean, weighs 18 pounds, but Riley appears to be much larger than him. Our adopted female tortie calico weighs in at a mere 7 pounds, but make no mistake … the boys know who the queen of the house is!

    Happy New Year to you, Jenny, Trigg and Charlie!
