At TICA’s Annual Cat Show in Santa Clara, California in September, cats were invited to be measured by the Guinness Book of World Records for the title of “longest cat”. Cats of all sizes and colors showed up, bu tonly one could capture the title.
Just last week Stewie — aka Mymains Stewart Giligan — a 5-year-old Maine Coon measured in at a whopping 48.5 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail when stretched out.
Stewie, a TICA-registered Maine Coon is owned by Robin Henrickson of Reno, Nevada.
The previous record holder also was a Maine Coon—Verisimo Leonetti Reserve Red (aka Leo) who captured the title in 2008 when he measured an exact 47 inches. Congrats Stewie and Robin!
