Mews: Largest Living cat – Katzenworld


Hi everyone,

The Guinness World Records kindly gave us permission to repost some of their cat world records as part of their 2016 book which is now available in stores!

Today we are looking at theĀ Largest living cat:

The largest living cat is Hercules, an adult male liger (lion x tigress hybrid) currently housed at Myrtle Beach Safari, a wildlife reserve in South Carolina, USA. In total length, he measures 3.33 m (131 in), stands 1.25 m (49 in) at the shoulder, and weighs 418.2 kg (922 lb).

Ligers are generally larger than their two parental species. In contrast, tigons, hybrids resulting from the reciprocal cross (tiger x lioness), are often smaller. He is pictured here with Moksha Bybee, an animal trainer from the wildlife reserve.

Slightly taller but lighter in weight is Herculesā€™s brother, Sinbad.

Ligers are generally larger than their two parental species. In contrast, tigons, hybrids resulting from the reciprocal cross (tiger x lioness), are often smaller.

I know Nubia can jump quite far but certainly not this far! How far can your cat jump?

Mews: Shortest living domestic cat (height) – Katzenworld


Hi everyone,

The Guinness World Records kindly gave us permission to repost some of their cat world records as part of their 2016 book which is available in stores!

Today we are looking at theĀ Shortest living domestic cat (height):

Weā€™ve seen plenty of munchkin cats in our cat cafe features in Japan! But Lillieput certainly looks a lot shorter. I always wonder how these little ones get on with their life as the normal activities canā€™t be easy for them! šŸ™
