Hi,
The average weight for an adult cat is 8-10 pounds. Males tend to weigh more than females. It is entirely possible that your cat shouldn't be in this weight range though. It depends a lot on how the cat is built. Some cats weigh 5 pounds while others weigh 14 pounds, and don't have any fat on them at all. Here is a link to a page showing how to tell if your cat weighs what it should:

If you have further questions let me know.

Thank you
