What Breed is My 20 Pound Kitty? — 9 Comments

  1. I don’t think your cat is a Maine Coon cross. He just looks like a really big domestic shorthair to me. Good job of putting him on a diet! 2 pounds overweight is still excessive for an animal as small as a cat. Kudos for getting five pounds off of him. Did you use weight loss food for him?

  2. I have a 20 lb tuxedo that is not overweight he’s just BIG big paws ,legs head,one of the things I love about TUX is he’s very vocal and affectionate and handsome .I’m a animal lover of all species and have 3 cats 3 dogs and tux is biggest of all he’s so affectionate and vocal you just gotta love him just wanted to share my TUX with others

    • Hi Craig, he sounds superb. He certainly sounds very large, much larger than the average domestic cat. He must be very impressive to look at. Thank you for visiting and telling me about your beautiful big boy.

  3. Sounds like my cat’s story. We got him from the shelter; he had been a surrender from a family with bad allergies. They had him since a kitten and said he was about 2yrs old at that time. He was 11lbs when we initially got him. By the time we took him for his annual appointment, he was 27lbs! The vet confirmed he wasn’t fat, all muscle, and in great health.

    He’s also a short-hair brown tabby bi-color with a slight tuxedo pattern. His face is more of the round, apple face, and large green eyes. He can jump clear to the ceiling to catch moths that happen in. He loves to ambush people (mainly on the stairs), and rolls on the floor and wrestles with my kids. He’s super friendly with everyone, and tends to chirp and meow as if he’s in the conversation. He’s like a “normal cat” but giant sized!

    • Hi Peng, thanks for sharing. You are lucky to be the companion to such an unusually large domestic cat. They are rare. It is just an individual trait. Gorgeous cat.

  4. I have a cat very similar to yours. He is also 20 pounds…very powerful, and very loving. Probably the kindest cat I’ve ever known. He was identified as a Balinese Snowshoe…better known as a Snowshoe. Most Snowshoes can be identified by their 4 white feet, and a white blotch on their face.

  5. I have two domestic shorthairs. My female weighs only 6.5lbs while my tom weighs 19.75lbs. The “normal” range for house cats is 8-12lbs but can vary greatly. Fred is very fluffy and may have something mixed in, butsince we found him alone and burned at 3 weeks we will never know what he is… except we know for certain he is love. Love and purring… and killing things.
