Cat vies for purr-fection in quest to become world's longest feline

No one really knew about Omar until they found out he would supersede a British cat now holding the record at 118.3cm, that the world record's team contacted his mum Stephanie Hirst on the Instagram account she just set up two weeks ago.

Hirst said she has been contacted by Guinness World Records, who said Omar could be the longest cat in the world. The three-year-old from Melbourne, Australia reportedly clocks in at an impressive 120 centimetres (47 inches) long, weighing a total of 30 pounds.

The current record holder at 118.33 cm (46.6 inches) is Ludo, another Maine Coon cat living in the United Kingdom.

A massive ME coon cat measuring almost 4 feet long in Australia may be the world's longest domestic cat.

His daily routine includes waking up at 5 a.m. for a few scoops of dry food, lounging around the house, playing in the backyard, napping and eating kangaroo meat for dinner.

But Hirst believes Omar would be happier without this fame.

Ms Hirst said she'd expected Omar to reach only around 9kg in weight, but he surpassed that before his first birthday.

A loving Australian pet owner only started her feline's social media account a fortnight ago. She describes him as a "relaxed and laid back" cat who loves a good sleep.

This is one big cat! "It's the only meat we could find that he actually wants to eat".

For now Omar will have to be content with his fame, but once the people from the Guinness Book of World Records get proof, he can take his place on the throne as the world's longest cat.
