Meet Omar! He was just like any other kitten in his litter, but today…
Omar is 120cm! This Maine Coon could be the longest domestic cat in the world! Two weeks ago this gentle giant’s owner, Ms. Hirst, started an Instagram account for her feline. So far, it has only 51 photos, however, one of them has recently been shared more than 270000 times on Cats of Instagram!
“All of our friends want to come over and see our cat,” Ms. Hirst said. “They say ‘is that Photoshopped?’ or ‘that can’t be real’ and then they see him in the flesh.”
The fluffy Melbourne resident was also noticed by the Guinness World Records and they contacted Ms. Hirst to receive her pet’s measurements.
Omar is also pretty much heavy, he weighs 14kg, the owner uses a dog crate to take the cat to the vet when needed.
“He does take up a bit too much room on the bed so he gets locked out of the bedroom at night,” Ms. Hirst said.
