The static properties of some possible light and moderate kaonic nuclei, from C to Ti, are studied using relativistic mean-field theory. The 1s and 1p state binding energies of K- are in the ranges of 73 similar to 96 and 22 similar to 63 MeV, respectively. The binding energies of the 1p states increase monotonically with the nucleon number A. The upper limit widths of the 1s and 1p states are about 42 +/- 14 and 71 +/- 10 MeV, respectively. The lower limit widths of the 1s and 1p state: are about 12 +/- 4 and 21 +/- 3 MeV, respectively. If V-0 <= 30 MeV, the discrete K- bound states should be identified in experiment. The shrinkage effect is found in the possible kaonic nuclei. The interior nuclear density increases obviously; the densest center density is about 2.1 rho(0).
