I was wondering what the avg person uses to weigh there cats. I have a spring type and if I shake it just right I can catch a pretty big fish:wink: I have seen the grippers mentioned in the other post but they are pretty expencive and a bit overkill. I useally dont hook the cat with scales, I leave him in the net and hook scales to the hoop. the whole net hoop and all weighs maybe a pound. hardly affects my scale by itself. but I want a scale that can weigh say up to 100 lbs and be fairly accurate.
