Meet Omar, The Aussie Feline In The Running To Be World’s Longest Cat

3 years old Omar, who has 12,000 followers within 2 weeks of joining instagram, currently weighs 14 kilograms and is reportedly 120 cm long — a mere 1.67 cm longer than Ludo, the current record holder.

The world’s longest cat owner, Stephy Hirst, told the Maroondah Leader that she & her partner had an inkling that they may have been proud parents of the world’s longest cat but “hadn’t done anything about it because he might not be fully grown yet”. He sleeps on the couch…because he takes up too much room on the bed.

My dad makes a pretty great bed, he has more room on him than mum does 🐱🐾

Stephy Hirst said: “Omar” was small when we got him but then he just started growing and was 10kg at one year old.



Omar’s measurements have been sent to Guinness World Records for verification.
