Here's my wife's two. 1 year old Rainboo and 4 month old Loki. You can't really tell how fluffy Loki is until you see his chest and belly so I added the second picture of him invaded the dog's crate.

I would guess he is up to around ten pounds, which still isn't much as he is a fairly large cat, and was previously weighed around 13lb without being overweight in the slightest.

His weight gain has been rather uneven, with him filling in around the waist, but still having very little flesh over his ribs, so in many respects he is still thin, and we believe that this is because our vet is basically correct - Milton has cancer, and is living on borrowed time. Because of that we are fully prepared for the day when he just won't eat*, ..... and about once every couple of weeks he seems to have a slow day and be less than enthusiastic about eating, and we wonder "is this it?" But overall he is still eating fairly well.

Flippin' tough.
As long as you guys feel Milton is having a good quality of life then all you can do is love him and keep on being prepared .
