My Grandmother's dog loooooves cats, she gets along with any cat she meets. However she's around 15 years old and keeps losing weight no matter how much she eats, it breaks my heart but every time I say goodbye to her I feel like it's going to be the last time

I don't know how much cats are supposed to weigh?
Our orange tabby is one of those "big & tall" cats. I think he's a little overweight though, 10kilos.
He loves to lay on my chest with his face right up next to mine
When he finally hops off you can feel all the blood rushing back. I think it might be time for a diet

They get along so amazing well, better than anything I could have wished for. They basically ignore each other, except Beckham who has a bad habit of sneaking up on the dog while she sleeps and getting in her face. The cats have accepted ownership of the basement, and the dog doesn't go down there besides poking her face through the cat door. The other good thing is that the dog never goes on any furniture and the cats have always hung out on the couch and the bed, so they aren't competing for space. When I have an empty sardine can, all four of them will try to lick it out at once.

It really depends on the cat since there's such a range of size and structure. My Marijke weighs less than 7lbs and is now an adult. Posh is a little under 10 and Beckham is more like 12 (he's always a little pudgy). They should be lean, but not too ribby. Marijke's so thin her pelvic bones stick out. I took her to the vet and they said as long as she eats good she's fine b/c her eyes, fur, and mouth looked fine. If I feed her more, she doesn't eat it all. I have to be most careful with Posh b/c she has the smallest frame and is most sedentary.

I recently switched to a holistic formula premium food totally free of all the crap cats and dogs don't need (wheat, corn, soy, barley....) and they are doing well, Beckham is not barfing. That was the main problem - Beckham is sensitive and barfs up most foods.

He sounds a lot like my MiloGuido. He's also a large orange tabby and also likes to sleep on my chest, purr, and stare at me. He's recently decided he likes to lick my hands during the night too. That's charming.

I don't think he weighs quite as much as yours, but is in the upper teens poundwise.

How many pounds is 10 kilos? Our gold tiger/tabby Fergus is closing in on 20 pounds, I think--but he has no fat at all. He is all muscle, and he is a big cat. From the base of his neck to the base of his tail, he's at least 20 inches. And his legs are about 10 inches long. He is just a big boy! But he's very sweet.

P.S. Lies, the picture of you and your furkids is just darling!

Our Maximus is a big tom as well (lives with my friend). He's orange and white and probably about 15lbs, but he's always been very thin and lanky. He's quite a bit larger/longer than Beckham.

2.2 lbs = 1 kilo

It must be an orange/yellow cat thing! All my yellow cat boys are large cats, but all very sweet too.
