Melissa sent this to me yesterday.

Mathew was a Maine Coon and I am always interested in seeing things about this.

RENO, Nev.— A cat in Reno has broken the Guinness world record for world’s longest domestic cat.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that a 5-year-old Maine Coon named Stewie was certified as the new record holder after measuring 48.5 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail bone. That’s a little more than 4 feet long.

The record was previously held by another Maine Coon that measured 48 inches.

Stewie’s owners, Robin Hendrickson and Erik Brandsness, said they decided to try for the record after hearing countless people say they were amazed by Stewie’s length.

Hendrickson said Maine Coons are known as “the gentle giants” of the cat world.

Mathew may not have been that long, but he did break some records, some World Heavyweight Championship records; the CMWF World Heavyweight Championship to be exact. (as seen here in This Just In!)

Mathew was a 9 time WHC back in the day. A record only matched by Peanut Chew, who has gone un-challenged since December 1, 2007. The whereabouts of the championship belt has yet to be disclosed.
