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?
