Unique World Records for Cats

Did you know that the Guiness World Record has an entire page on their website dedicated specifically to cats! Keep reading to find out more about five world records held by very unique cats.

1. Longest domestic Cat Ever

The longest domestic cat ever on record was a Maine Coon named Stewie, short for Mymains Stewart Gilligan. The large cat measured 48.5 inches long (123 cm). Stewie was owned by Robin Hendrickson and Erik Brandsness (Reno, USA). Unfortunately, the beautiful cat passed away in 2013, but he left his mark as the longest cat ever in the Guinness world records.

2. Loudest purr by a domestic cat

The 13 year old Merlin, owned by Tracy Westwood (UK), recorded the loudest purr at 67.8 db. Nearly as loud as a dishwasher, that purr is pretty loud. But cat lovers all love that sound, don’t we?

Learn more about Merlin’s record.

3. Longest jump by a cat

Waffle The Warrior Cat is the record holder for the longest jump by a cat. The ten year old californian cat has managed to achieve a 7 ft (213,36 cm) long jump!

4. Longest cat whiskers

Another Maine Coon holds the record for longest whiskers at 7.5 inches (19 cm). Missi, short for “Full Moon’s Miss American Pie” (quite a name, huh?), lives with her owner Kaija Kyllönen in Finland.

5. Most tricks performed by a cat in one minute

Most people think that cats, unlike dogs, can’t be as easily trained to perform tricks. 

Robert Dollwet, however, had managed to train his talented cat Didga to perform 24 tricks in one minute, becoming the record holder for most tricks performed by a cat in one minute (Meanwhile, I can’t even get my cat to sit).

Check out Didga and Robert in this amazing video.
