After picking up Obie today and thinking 'Christ!' I popped him on the scales....

He's now 23 pounds of self satisfied ginger badass grin. He'll be 2 in June and he's definitely still growing! He looks like a nightclub bouncer with fur :D

Just thought I'd better let you know....he still has the potential for 25...

Hah! grin

For those who might be wondering what this is about, I predicted that Obie would end up at 25 at an early age.

Medusa was still in denial at that stage. wink

I think we need a photo of the lad, Medusa? smile

Photo! Photo!

Cozie is like my dh, tells what you don't want to hear but is right with unerring accuracy.

StillMedusa Fri 08-Apr-16 20:54:18

I tried to get a pic... when stretched out he is enormous but he isn't a fan of being picked up so he kept trying to curl up and sulk :D
However here he is (we are decorating..we don't usually look THIS scruffy lol)

cozietoesie Fri 08-Apr-16 20:55:43

Not at all, Fluffy. As I recall, I was just expressing a lively concern for Medusa's future food bill? grin

cozietoesie Fri 08-Apr-16 20:57:14

Strewth. I know that Maine Coons can run to a big cat but he is huge! smile

He is a gorgeous love! What a glorious ginger gent! More to love! More to snuggle! He looks so happy and pleased with himself.

Is that DH struggling to bear the weight of the little scrap of fur?

Massive, massive congrats from me and Mr C. Adorable to the max.

It's like owning a small ginger lion. How big is your cat flap?.

Vinorosso74 Fri 08-Apr-16 21:36:26

Wow that is a lot of cat! He's like a mini lion.
Our old girl only weighs 3 kilos at the moment so is tiny in comparison.

ThisIsme2 Fri 08-Apr-16 21:39:50

He is gorgeous! I'd love a Maine Coon one day, they are so beautiful.

StillMedusa Fri 08-Apr-16 21:54:33

We don't have a cat flap.. but our neighbour two doors down does..and it's Obie's second home. They say it is hilarious to watch. Basically he gets his head and front paws through and then scrabbles with his back legs to squeeze his large torso thro..and there is a large thump as his back end arrives :D

It may also be why he is now 23 pounds...he eats there as well!

cozietoesie Fri 08-Apr-16 21:58:01

I see what you mean about the nightclub bouncer bit. grin

His sister's only a little cutie isn't she? (Relatively speaking. wink)

I have a very similar ginger MC who I think is about 26lb, a cream tabby who is nearer 28, a tiny girl blue and white girl who's only about 7lb...and a silver tortie tabby kitten who weighs about the same as a bag of sugar!

daisiesinthespring Fri 08-Apr-16 22:39:42

Oh my god! Is that a cat, or a lion?

cozietoesie Fri 08-Apr-16 22:43:13

Goodness, Statistically. I wouldn't like to have to fund your vet and groceries bills. grin

Bogburglar99 Fri 08-Apr-16 22:47:03

My goodness. BBKitten/Leopard is a solid stone of Siberian and elicits queries about whether he is actually a cat, but that is something else!

He's gorgeous smile

I'm currently weaning the buggers on to raw but until we got the midget they were on Royal Canin Maine Coon - 10kg sack about every 5-6 weeks @ £45 so not too bad if you buy in bulk! Raw will be a bit more, I think about £60 a month or so...they're all insured but we're not at the vets much at all - the odd eye infection and that's about it!

They're house cats though so they don't tend to get injured/pick up bugs really and we don't do annual boosters/flea treatment either (which our vet supports)

For scale. ..DH is 6ft...

cozietoesie Fri 08-Apr-16 23:39:14

That must be a very tall cat tree that you have. smile

2016namechangecomingalong Fri 08-Apr-16 23:39:44

Bloody hell shock That lot should be in a safari park not a house grin

slinking away with my mere 6kg ginger boy

cozietoesie Fri 08-Apr-16 23:42:09

We aspire to 6kg, Semiorboy only being about 3.3 these days. smile

It's from Petfun, I think the post is 210cm grin

You can't do things by halves with these big dudes!

StillMedusa, Obie might have a fair few more lbs in him yet, both my lads kept growing until at least 3 (my Obie-a-like is 4 in July and I'm not convinced he's done yet, although it's hard to tell if he's getting bigger or just fluffier!)
