Is it possible for me to grow too fast?

OK, I feel silly now--I got Meowma to show me how many inches 48 is,and yes, I guess it is all-that-big. laugh out loud I'm ust not sure that kitty has matured enoughto have the big huge head and body I'm thinking of. Teddy Bearz, how much do you weigh? I am a standard kitty, but fat...Meowma says if she gets a show kitty it as to be a smaller breed because she cant even hold me for more than a couple of minutes without it making her back hurt, even if she has her feet in a wide stance!

Yes, the tape measurer really puts it in perspective. laugh out loud

I totally agree his face etc are not that big yet. Also, he is a neuter, and will not be developing the male jowls. And I have no clue about his weight. I have been wanting to take him to the pet store. They have a big dog scale there. Teddy Bearz is a VERY slim kitty. When walking, his stomach actually bows inward on the sides. When sitting, he gets all bunched up like an accordian. Or better yet, a slinky toy! laugh out loud

His big gangly feet have been a thorn in his side, his whole life. He slips and slides on every smooth surface. While standing on smooth surfaces, his feet actually slide out sideways like a klutzy puppies. He even "ice skates" on my kitchen floor on purpose. While jumping when he was younger, he used to trip over his feet and then go sailing accross my tables on his tummy fur. He is still accident prone when jumping. But improving. He's my little "puppy cat".

His growth spurt and appetite seemed to have slowed down a bit. Whew! Mommie can relax.... Then last night, he ate a bowl heaped full with food in less than a minute. After I had already given him a whole bowl full of chicken several hours earlier. Same this morning. Here we go again......

Bumpurr, do I know you? The pic is actually a Petco photog pic. So I am clueless about show regions. I would imagine that you measure on the side.

And I see that you have a redhead too! I love readheads. Very pretty kitty you have there. smile

Looked like a show picture to me, mol, look at the MC show pictures, they did a good job at Petco. Saw your video on U Tube too, such a cute cute kitten! way to go

Well, was gonna give you the MC link on CFA, looks like they changed things around, so now gonna have to search for it. laugh out loud

I would also assume that you use a hard ruler/ tape, not the cloth sewing type, and that you do not try to follow the body contour-it probably takes at least 3 people, mol.
Teddy Bearz, now I'm confused--are you purebred but had the picture made at Petco? And if so, are you a Tucklebear? They grow some biguns, that cattery was present at one show I've been to at least.

Yes I am a purebreed. I had my pic taken at Petco one day. It was a bad fur day for me since all my fur was full of static cling. And my tail was all flat vs fluffy. Everyone at Petco thought I was a huge ADULT kitty. laugh out loud No I am not a Tucklebear. Just a Teddy Bearz... laugh out loud

Thanx for the video compliment Bumpurr. My mommie was not shedding me in a good light. But it was all in Xmas fun! Merry Xmas folks!

oh man what a cool cat! DO WANT.

Can I shoot you a paw mail? No I'm not going to ask to buy your cat MOL. I'm going to talk to you about feeding the big guy. I don't think he's getting too big! I'd say you're one lucky guardian to have such a special guy!

This should be the beginning of a very interesting and wonderful! Don't forget wonderful! relationship, you basically have a house tiger there. eek
