Some people want tiny, teacup-size fluffball cats. Others like the no-nonsense breeds that do their own thing. Whatever your preference, it's important to know what you want in a pet so it will fit your lifestyle. This usually means that people lean toward smaller cats that won't get in the way. After all, the average house cat weighs between 8 and 10 pounds.
But what about big cats?
Using our cat breeds data, we set out to identify the heaviest domestic cats in the world and then ranked them based on their adult weight (cat weights come in ranges, however, so all weights are approximate). Though smaller cats seem to be the preferred variety, these big breeds might be perfect for those looking for a dog without the slobbering and needing-a-walk aspects.
