The Welland Tribune - - WORLD NEWS -

FARM­ING­TON HILLS, Mich. — Two Guin­ness World Records- hold­ing cats are miss­ing af­ter a fire gut­ted their own­ers’ subur­ban Detroit home.

Will and Lau­ren Pow­ers es­caped Sun­day’s blaze, but Arc­turus and Cygnus haven’t been seen since. Both cats are two years old.

Will Pow­ers says the cou­ple opened some doors as they fled their burn­ing Farm­ing­ton Hills’ house in hopes that Arc­turus, Cygnus and their third cat would es­cape.

The As­so­ci­ated Press left a mes­sage Mon­day seek­ing com­ment from fire of­fi­cials.

Arc­turus holds the Guin­ness World Record for be­ing the tallest do­mes­tic cat, mea­sur­ing at about 48 cm. Cygnus is the do­mes­tic cat with the world’s long­est tail, mea­sur­ing at more than 43 cm.

Guin­ness has said the Pow­ers sought the records to raise aware­ness about a cat shel­ter.
