Omar God! This cat might be longest on planet

  • Omar could be the world's longest cat

The current record-holder is a cat named Ludo, from West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, who measures 3 feet 10.59 inches (118.33 centimeters). If Hirst's claims that Omar is over 120, that would quite easily make him the World's Longest Cat.

A huge house-cat which weighs 14kg and eats raw kangaroo meat for dinner has become an internet sensation after shooting to fame on Instagram. An Arabic-named supersized cat in Australia is now being considered for a Guinness World Record.

"(Omar) was tiny when we got him but then he just started growing and was 10kg at one year old", she was quoted as saying.

Hirst said Omar is often cheeky and uses his size to his advantage.

Guinness representatives in London confirmed they had received an application "from Omar and his family" but Ms Hirst said staking a claim to fame is "not important" to her. A ME coon, he measures 1.2m (3ft 11in) and weighs 14kg (2st 3lb), making him three times the size of the average house cat.

This long cat is long.

That photo now has nearly 275,000 likes and Omar's Instagram account has close to 25,000 followers. However, the "placid" pet has not coped well with the media scrutiny, Ms Hirst told the BBC. "It's the only meat we could find that he actually wants to eat".

Weighing in at a whopping 30.8 pounds and measuring 3.93 feet long, Omar is much bigger than your average Australian cat.

A cat from Australia may soon be entering the Guinness Book of World Records, believed to be the longest domestic feline in the world.
