HOW big?

It seems my wife and I are in the business of growing cats. Large cats. Like, miniature lions. We've taken in 6 of the 8 to the vet for their checkups, and discovered an interesting trend.

Pepper, who is actually rather small by comparison, is 9 pounds, 11 ounces.

Stucco, our alpha cat, long thought to be sizeable, is only around 12 pounds.

Salt, who's sweet but freaking -dim- and neurotic, and also Pepper's twin brother, is a whopping 16 pounds, 11 ounces.

Gabriel, the Maine Coon, tops out at 17 pounds, 9 ounces.

We were boggled. And perversely proud. Go kitties. Grow, and eat Japan.
