Record-set­ting cats share home near Detroit

Medicine Hat News - - LIFESTYLES -

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. Here’s a very tall tail: Two record­set­ting cats are liv­ing to­gether near Detroit.

Arc­turus Alde­baran Pow­ers holds the Guin­ness World Records mark for tallest do­mes­tic cat, mea­sur­ing at about 19 inches (48 cen­time­tres). House­mate Cygnus Reg­u­lus Pow­ers holds the record for the do­mes­tic cat with the long­est tail, mea­sur­ing more than 17 inches (43 cen­time­tres).

The cats live in Farmington Hills with Will and Lau­ren Pow­ers. Guin­ness says they sought the records to raise aware­ness about a cat shel­ter.

Will Pow­ers told The Detroit News that peo­ple of­ten want to have pho­tos taken with the cats, so they ask them for do­na­tions for the shel­ter.

He says both cats are about 2 years old. MLive.com re­ports that Arc­turus could keep grow­ing un­til age four or five.
