World Record Of Largest Cat

World Record Of Largest Cat

Regularly in the US there are competitions held to judge the largest cat in the world. Sometimes, cat owners tend to feed their cats too much in order to get their name on the top. However, these records are not considered by the Guinness Book of World Records, so it is futile for you to go that way.

So, what is the world record of the largest cat? If you look at the cat family, then you may be able to guess the largest cat in the world. While tigers are bigger than lions, it is a liger, which is an offspring on a lion and tiger, that isconsidered to be the largest cat in the world. However, ligers do not breed in the wild and can only be reproduced in captivity, but even this is quite rare.

The world record of the largest cat, that is the domestic cat, goes to Maine coon cat. This particular breed of cat is around ten to twenty pounds in weight and grows to a height of around fourteen inches. While this breed is considered to be from Maine, no one really knows a lot about its origins.

In fact, the Guinness World Record for the largest cat is held by a Maine coon cat named Versimo Leonetti Reserve Red. The cat is lovingly called Leo and he belongs to Frieda Ireland. The cat's weight is around thirty-five pounds and its length from the tip of his tail to the top of his nose is around forty-eight inches. Although the cat is quite heavy, vets, who have checked him, claim that he is not at overweight or obese.
