Everyone knows Magic the Cat (Queen of the Universe), my co-author on the two Everyday Witch A to Z books. But not everyone has met her brother Mystic (the Magnificent). When they were kittens, Magic and Mystic were the same size, as you can see from the photo below. But Mystic just kept growing. Magic is about 11 lbs; fairly average for a cat. Mystic hit over 18 lbs at one point. Since going on a diet, he is at a nice, healthy 16.8 or so. And he's not fat--he's just HUGE. His shoulders are a good inch or two above the other cats.
Luckily, he is mostly, well, a pussycat, with a very mellow nature. Except when if comes to tiny 7 lb Samhain, who for some reason he has disliked since the moment I adopted her. I have to keep them apart, or he tried to murdalize her. No idea why.
Other than that, though, he is just a big, sweet guy. Unless you're a mouse. But that's a story for another day...
