World Record Largest Cat


Apartment Listing  

Several records have been removed for ethical reasons from the Guinness Book of World Records and ‘the largest cat’ is one such record to have been removed. When a category called ‘heaviest cat’ was published, there were reports of overfeeding of cats by cat owners which finally led to the withdrawal of this category. The Guinness does not allow heaviest or fattest cat to be featured on its prestigious records list.

The world’s largest cat is owned by Rodger Degagne, an erstwhile employee of AECL in Chalk River. His cat Snowball is 9 years old and weighs 87 lbs, and measures 69 inches from nose to tail. Her favorite food is chicken, but she also eats 3 lbs of cat food every day.

Other sources say that the world’s fattest cat was “Himmey,” a neutered male cat who weighed 47 pounds when he died.

In 2006, the Guinness Record for the longest cat went to Verismo Leonetti Reserve Red, which was 48 inches tall, and weighed 35 pounds. In 2005, the longest whiskers on a cat went to a Maine coon. Her whiskers measured 7.5 inches.

Among the pedigree breeds, the Maine Coons are the largest of them all. Their tufted lynx-ears are very popular and make them look bigger and wilder than their other domestic counterparts raised at homes around the world. Considered a ‘man’s cat’ Maine Coons are larger than the average size of a dog.

Rhett Butler, a Maine Coon, was the Canadian cat of the year for the show season 2008-2009.
