Record-set­ting cats are a tall tail

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - WORLD NEWS -

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 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 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.
