Omar the Maine Coon cat may take the title of world’s longest household cat after Guinness World Records saw a photo of the cat on Instagram and reached his proprietor.
Omar extends to 1.2 meters (47.2 inches) and tips the scales at 14 kg (30.8 pounds), as indicated by the cat’s proprietor, Stephy Hirst, from Melbourne.
“We were expecting around a nine kilo cat,” said Hirst, who told the Maroondah Leader that the Guinness World Records had connected with her about Omar.
“He got to that before he was one-year-old and that is the point at which we kind of understood that he’s not about done yet.”
The present record holder at 118.33 centimeters (46.6 inches) is Ludo, a Maine Coon cat living in the United Kingdom.
Omar eats dry cat nourishment and kangaroo meat and has a casual life relaxing around the house with pooches Rafiki and Penny, Hirst revealed to Australia’s Seven Network.
Guinness World Records presently can’t seem to affirm if Omar takes the title.
Maine Coons are one of the biggest types of trained cats on the planet. They get their name from the U.S. state, where it is the official state cat.
