Record-setting cats are a tall tail
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.
