Massive cat set to break a Guinness World Record

Omar could be the world's longest cat

The Guinness World Records could have a new cat at the top of the record chart, with a 120cm-long Maine Coon cat named Omar vying for the title of "World's Biggest Cat".

The current record holder is UK-based Ludo, also a maine coon, which measured in at 118.33cm long in October 2015.

A shockingly big cat is making the rounds on social media after his Instagram account attracted the users' eyes who have shared his picture for 270,000 times thus far.

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.

Guinness contacted Hirst after seeing Omar on Instagram to let her know she could have a champion on her hands. "It's the only meat we could find that he actually wants to eat".

Taking all that into account reduces the cost of a new roof to close to that of a conventional roof, assuming it lasts 30 years. A glass tile, without the solar elements costs $11 per square foot, and the solar tiles themselves are $42 per square foot.

Owner Stephy Hirst, from Croydon in Melbourne, told the Maroondah Leader she started an Instagram account for her giant cat a couple of weeks ago and before long he had been featured on Cats of Instagram, which has more than 8 million followers. His owner uses the dog crate to take her to the vet.

Hirst told Australia's Herald Sun newspaper: "At first I thought 'is this real?"

Omar is the cat that got the cream, and it looks like he ate most of it.

However, Ms Hirst believes that her feline would prefer to return to its relaxed life before it found fame. There is a widespread though biologically-impossible legend that they resulted from a cross between a domesticated cat and a racoon (or a cat and a bobcat).

She thinks Omar would prefer to go back to his laid-back lifestyle.
