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.
