And while on the subject of weight, I also tried the cats.

Totoro is weighing in at about 10 pounds, which is a not unreasonable weight for a tom coming up 9 months.

The surprise is that Sakura is 9 pounds. Put them together, and she looks smaller than her brother, but weight-wise, there doesn't seem to be much in it. I think it's down to the colouration: he's a black-flecked brown while she's fawn, and I think it's that dark coloured things look larger than their light-coloured equivalents.

They're also both mostly muscle. She managed to push open the bedroom door yesterday morning, despite it supposedly being shut.

They have weight disguise, if you ask me. Horus, too look at, is a long, slim cat. But pick him up.... Oh, the heft. He's 6kg.

Well, yes. I've been convinced for some time that cats, or Abbies at least, have some form of gravity-battery. They can be so very, very light on occasion, such as when you realise one has been lying on your lap for the last ten minutes and you never noticed them arrive, and at other times they obviously mass as much as a small elephant.

Kosh was 5 kg, and Talia 3.5 - that Sake is already heavier than Talia was may be that Floridian females average heavier than British ones.
