Is 6 pounds a healthy weight for a full grown cat?

It depends on the bone structure of the cat. A domestic cat can weigh about 6 to 10 pounds, on average, depending on the size of its bones. If you can see your cat's ribs easily and without having to touch the cat's side, it is probably underweight. If it is underweight, it may also be underactive, due to lack of energy. If he or she is not eating regularly, you might need to take the cat to a veterinarian. There could be something as simple as a hairball causing the problem, or something more serious. See the Related Link below for a visual guide to your cat's weight.

How does being underweight affect you?

Being underweight is (most of the time) due to hormonal or adrenal issues. However some people are just naturally skinny or underweight, and they can't seem to do anything about it. It's best to get medical advice from a professional for someone who doesn't have a healthy weight in general, to see what their options are.

How fat is a horse?

A horse is as fat as you make him by how much you feed him. The general rule is you should see 3 ribs. Some people like a little more weight than the 3-rib rule allows. I personally don't want to see any ribs and never hip bones. Racing Thoroughbreds alway see 3 ribs. They are in tip-top shape. Stock type halter horses are so heavy you would never know they have bones. Some of this is personal preference. But you don't want to see more than 3 ribs, hip bones, sunken neck and flanks, the whole ridge of the back bone or sharp bony withers. Most people can tell at a glance if the horse is underweight. Then there is the other end of the spectrum. Too fat horses can have their lives shortened by obesity. A good work-out 3 or 4 times a week will keep your horse in good shape. He will live longer and be happier and so will you.

How do you know if you are underweight?
