Regardless of how you interpret the title...

I will start! Many of you know my cat Nori. :good: Here is a 'Greatest Hits' photo album...

I have a 13 1/2 lb. Calico (it's not all muscle) and a 14 1/2 lb. black and white male who likes to let me know when he is hungry by chewing on my feet. I don't think they are litter mates, but they were in the same cage at the shelter 10 years ago, so they have been together their whole lives. They enjoy bringing us presents. I have gotten to be good at rescuing live birds they bring into the house through the pet door.

Buford was our 23 pounder. Our big boy now is Jasper, 18 pounds. Our alpha cat Pixel is only five or six pounds, but has the catitude to be queen over the other three cats.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are still missing! :D

Small cats are okay, too! The BIG in my title refers to the thread (I hope).

Nori is only "medium" at 11.5 pounds. Down from 12.5 at one point.

He's not a fan of flashes going off in his face!! :biggrin:

He's also the biggest softy. While I can rile him up a little bit, it only lasts for a minute or two at the very most.

Here's Jean-Luc, our new 10 pound ish Sphynx. Named so because he is a bald explorer, of course.

My wife is seriously allergic to cats, but she does drive a 1998 Jaguar XJ8L. Does that count as a Big Cat? ;)

This thread has its own theme song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gk4xPD1xD_A

I play in a big band that has quite a few of Terry's charts, I love them!

In the meantime, I'll look for pics on my phone of my brother's Maine Coon...
