Australian Maine Coon Could be World's Longest Cat

Omar is a Maine coon cat living in Melbourne, Australia. He is 47 inches long and weighs 31 pounds. His favorite food is raw kangaroo meat. Omar towers over the sheltie dog he lives with. His owner Stephy Hirst started Omar an Instagram account, and he was soon featured on Cats of Instagram. Representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records were intrigued, and contacted Hirst to ask for his measurements. Hirst's measurement placed Omar at about an inch longer than the current record holder!

Hirst says she had thought about Omar being a record-breaker, but she didn't say anything before because she's not sure if he has even finished growing. Read more about Omar the four-foot-long cat at the Telegraph. -via Mental Floss
