f2 female weight...


Savannah Child
hello everyone. about a month ago my girl and i bought a f2 female from joykatz. her name is macy and we love her! she just turned five months today and yesterday she went to the vet for shots. he weighed her at 5 lbs 9 oz. we are thinking she should be a bit larger by now....she eats like a pig but shes rather scrawny. any input?

The breeders will probably answer you better, but that sounds about right. I have full blown F3 adults who are scrawny but very healthy and active. Only 11-12 pounds. The real question is, does the cat seem healthy? That's the real goal to attain.

That is a proper weight for Macy! We usually say about one pound a month.

But since she is a female, she may not get very large.

It would be unusual for Macy to be a huge cat. We DO see larger cats at F2 generation but it is the males that tend to be largest not the girls. My F2 from Joykatz was never more than 10lbs, another one a friend of mine had was only 8lbs but her littermate brother was 35!

Jacqui, that was Kristine's Lulu and Rumsfeld (Rummy)...they were also my Bobo's younger siblings and he only got to 13-14lbs!
