Cute Kitty Grows To World’S Biggest Domestic Cat!

Is That Photo shopped? That Can’T Be Real! These Are Questions Commonly Posed To Stephy Hirst Of Melbourne, Australia, Who Is The The Owner Of Omar. Omar Is A Maine Coon, A Breed Of Domestic Cat Known For Growing Especially Large.

In Fact The Current World-Record Holder For The World’S Longest Domestic Cat Is Also A Maine-Coon From Yorkshire In England. However, If The Measurements Are Correct, Omar May Just Have Him Beat By Half An Inch, Which Is A Pretty Big Difference In World-Record Terms!

Ludo From West Yorkshire Is 46.5 Inches, And We Reckon Omar Is Threatening His Crown! What Do You Think? Hard To Tell From The Photos? Bets Are On! At The Time Of Writing, The Guinness Book Of World Records Haven’T Yet Verified Omar’S Claims, But I Always Love To Root For The Underdog, Come On Omar!

When Stephy First Brought Omar Home, She Had No Idea What She Was Letting Herself In For. He Was The Same Size As His Siblings, There Was No Clue That She Could Be Bringing A New World Record Holder Home. Stephy Gave The BBC A Little Insight Into His Life, He’S Up At About 5 Am When He Has A Few Scoops Of Dry Cat Food.

5 Am? That’S Love Right There Stephy! Then He Likes To Go Out Into The Garden For A Play, And Especially Enjoy Stretching Out For A Snooze On The Trampoline.

Apparently, The Only Meat He’S Into Is, Get This, Raw Kangaroo! It Sounds Like This Lovely Giant Kitty Really Is Living The Life Of Riley, But I Can’T Help But Wonder, Does He Even Know?

Does He See Other Cats Around Him And Say To Himself, Hey, How Come I’M So Huge? Hirst Told Global News That They Were Expecting A Cat Of Around Nine Kilos Or 19 Pounds, But That When He Got To One Year Old They Thought, ‘Hey, He’S Not Done Yet, He’S Still Growing!’ Now Fully Grown, Omar Is A Whopping 47 Inches And 30 Pounds! Sadly For Poor Omar, Hirst Has Explained He’S Had To Forego A Privilege Many Of His Littler Cousins Enjoy, That Of Sleeping On The Bed ‘He Takes Up A Bit Too Much Room.’ Hirst Explained.

Poor Omar, That’S The Price You Pay For Belt-Busting Record-Breaking! After Setting Up An Instagram Account For Omar, His Picture Was Shared On The Page ‘Cats Of Instagram’, And It Was Here That Omar First Caught The Eye Of The Guinness World Records Team. What A Gorgeous Cat, And Clearly Omar Is Very Well Loved.

Which Is Great Because Just Look At Him, He’S Made For Cuddles!
