World Record Holding Cats

We know that cats are amazing, but did you know some of them hold certified World records too? These six cats are very unique in that they’ve got something so special they hold a world record for it! Check it out, you may be surprised by a few of these!

1. LONGEST DOMESTIC TAIL

Stewie the Maine Coon is already big by domestic cat standards, but what sets him apart from other cats is how long Stewie’s tail is. Stewie currently holds the world record for having the longest tail of any domestic cat, measuring a whopping 16.34 inches! We’re pretty sure that helps Stewie quite a bit with balance!

2. WEALTHIEST CAT

Yes, you might be a little jealous that this cat probably has more money than you ever will. It’s normal. Blackie is the world’s richest cat, having a net worth of over 12.5 million dollars. How did Blackie receive all this money? His owner Ben Rea left it to Blackie after he passed away. Now Blackie can get all the prime tuna he wants!

3. LONGEST FUR

You may have heard of Colonel Meow… he’s getting quite popular in social media. Residing in Seattle, Washington, Colonel Meow has an average coat length of 9 inches! That’s incredibly long for any cat, but Colonel Meow sure does wear it well!

4. OLDEST CAT

Creme Puff the cat holds the record for the oldest cat who ever lived. Before I tell you just how long he lived, take a guess and keep that number in your head. Creme Puff lived to be 38 years and 3 days old! Bet that number was a bit higher than you had imagined!

5. MOST TOES

Jake the cat is polydactyl, which means he has more than the normal amount of toes on his feet. Some cats have just one foot with more toes, but all four of Jake’s feet have extra toes! In total, Jake has 28 toes, 7 on each foot! Now that’s a lot of toes!

6. LOUDEST PURR

Smokey the cat has no problem letting you know how much he feels loved. Cats tend to purr when they’re feeling happy, and Smokey’s purr can reach a whopping 92 dB! In comparison, that’s about as loud as a watching a plane land. Most cats only purr around 25 decibels, making Smokey really loud. If you didn’t know of Smokey’s loud purr, you might be in for a surprise!
