Record-set­ting cats are a tall tail

Northumberland Today - - WORLD NEWS -

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — Here’s a very tall tail: Two record-set­ting cats are liv­ing to­gether near Detroit. Arc­turus Alde­baran Pow­ers holds the Guin­ness World Records mark for tallest do­mes­tic cat, mea­sur­ing at about 48 cm. House­mate Cygnus Reg­u­lus Pow­ers holds the record for the do­mes­tic cat with the long­est tail, mea­sur­ing more than 43 cm. 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, both about two years old, so they ask them for do­na­tions for the shel­ter. The cats could con­tinue to grow un­til they are four years old.
