What is a healthy weight for a cat?

A healthy weight for most cats is between 8 and 10 lbs., according to the American Animal Hospital Association. However, petite cats should weigh less and cats with large frames may weigh more. To tell if your cat is overweight, move your hands along its sides. The ribs should be covered with a layer of fat, but you should be able to feel and count them.
