Despite numerous studies of the HI content of galaxies, no revision has been made for the most isolated L* galaxies since Haynes & Giovanelli (1984AJ.....89..758H). The AMIGA sample has been demonstrated to be almost "nurture free", therefore, by creating scaling relations for the HI content of these galaxies we will define a metric of HI normalcy in the absence of interactions. The catalogue comprises of our own HI observations with Arecibo, Effelsberg, Nancay and GBT, and spectra collected from the literature. In total we have measurements or constraints on the HI masses of 844 galaxies from the Catalogue of Isolated Galaxies (CIG). The multi-wavelength AMIGA dataset includes a revision of the B-band luminosities, optical diameters, morphologies, and isolation. Due to the large size of the catalogue, these revisions permit cuts to be made to ensure isolation and a high level of completeness, which was not previously possible. With this refined dataset we fit HI scaling relations based on luminosity, optical diameter and morphology. Our regression model incorporates all the data, including upper limits, and accounts for uncertainties in both variables, as well as distance uncertainties. The HI scaling relations of the AMIGA sample define an up-to-date metric of the HI content of almost "nurture free" galaxies. These relations allow the expected HI mass, in the absence of interactions, of an individual galaxy to be predicted to within 0.25dex (for typical measurement uncertainties). These relations are thus suitable for use as statistical measures of the impact of interactions on the neutral gas content of galaxies. Description: We present our compilation of global HI properties of CIG galaxies from single dish 21cm observations. The data are approximately 50% our own observations and 50% data from the literature, as indicated in the tables themselves. All spectra were re-processed to produce a data set that is as uniform as possible. The data (including literature data) were collected with Arecibo, Effelsberg, Jodrell Bank, Nancay, Parkes, and various Green Bank telescopes. File Summary:
