A 14 kilogram cat has been hailed as the longest cat in the world, as it’s photo has already gone viral on social media.
After Omar’s picture went viral his owner Stephy Hirst, from Melbourne, was contacted by Guinness World Records, who suggested her cat could be the longest in the world.
Ms Hirst said she would now send Omar’s measurements in for official verification.
‘We thought he might be (the longest cat in the world) but we hadn’t done anything about it because he might not be fully grown yet,’ Ms Hirst told The Herald Sun.
Ms Hirst and her partner Rowan got Omar when he was a kitten.
And just like other cats he enjoys napping.
