Supersized Cat

May 22, 2017

Omar was the same size as all the other kittens in his litter when he was taken home by his owner Stephy Hirst in 2013.

But now the 120cm cat from Melbourne, Australia, could be the world’s longest domestic cat. He weighs in at 14kg! Omar is too heavy to regularly pick up, and Ms Hirst has to use a dog crate to take him to the vet.

Ms Hirst started a social media account for Omar two weeks ago and one of her photos was shared on the Cats of Instagram account more than 270,000 times. She was then contacted by the Guinness World Records to send in his measurements. The current record-holder for the longest cat is a 118cm cat from the UK.

Omar typically rises at 05:00, eats a couple of scoops of dry cat food for breakfast, lounges around the house, plays in the backyard, naps on the trampoline and eats raw kangaroo meat for dinner.

Omar has also displayed a talent for opening doors, kitchen cupboards, shower screens and wardrobes.
