A couple adopts a tiny kitten from Maine called a Maine Coon. He grows to be the world’s longest cat
This Melbourne-based couple didn’t think much of Omar’s size when they took him in as a pet. It turns out that he looked just like his siblings. But today, he broke the Guinness World Record for the World’s Longest Cat, so he did it again.
Cat-mom Stephy Hirst said that she never thought Omar would grow so big.
There was a 19-pound cat that we thought would come.
Before he was even a year old, he could do that. That’s when we realized that he wasn’t done yet.
It took a while for Omar to grow up, but he just kept growing and was 22 pounds when he was one year old. The pompous cat now stands 47 inches tall and weighs about 30 pounds.
A popular Instagram account called “Cats of Instagram” shared photos of Omar. This made him famous. When the cat gets the attention of the Guinness Book of World Records, that’s when the record is broken.
All of Stephy Hirst’s friends want to come over and see her cat. Is this picture Photoshopped? They say that. Then they see him in person.
There are some downsides to being the world’s longest cat as well. The family’s bed is too small to fit the whole family on. Stephy said: “He sleeps on the couch because he takes up too much space on the bed. He wants us to cuddle and pet him all night long.” In the video below, you can see this cute, different cat.
