Meet Omar, believed to be the world’s longest domestic cat at 120cm (3ft 11in).
The three-year old Maine Coon from Melbourne, Australia weighs 14kg, but was the same size as the rest of his litter when his owner Stephy Hirst took him home as a 12-week-old kitten in 2013.
But he soon started to grow.
Life of leisure
Ms Hirst told the BBC Omar typically rises at 5am, 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.
“We buy human-grade kangaroo meat at the supermarket,” Ms Hirst said. “It’s the only meat we could find that he actually wants to eat.”
The world’s longest cat is a 118cm (3ft 10.5in) Maine Coon from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, but Guinness World Records has contacted Ms Hirst to provide Omar’s official measurements.
