An adorable Tabby from Savannah Michigan recently received his special world title. The large cat named Fenrir Antares Powers has set the Guinness World Record for the “Tallest domestic living cat”.
“The fascinating feline, who belongs to Dr. William John Powers of Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA, measured an astonishing 47.83 cm (18.83 in) on 29 January 2021.”
The beautiful cat’s parents owns a medical practice in Michigan and this gentle giant surely takes his role as a self made therapy cat very serious. “This guy follows me room to room, hops up on the exam table when I greet the patient, and gets to work on making them feel safe and comfortable. He will see patients with me, following me room to room until he starts to tire out, then he’ll usually stay in one room and curl up on a chair somewhere and snooze until lunchtime.”
Fenrir finally received his award after having two brothers, Cygnus and Arcturus who already held the record for longest tail and tallest cat respectively. Sadly, the two passed away after a house tragic house fir. The loss was devastating for Powers and his wife, and after some time the time felt right to adopt again.
“I don’t really have words to describe what that was like but I wasn’t well for a long time afterwards. I didn’t work for a long time but eventually I started to get better and I missed having cats."
Powers has also put his will to good use by help to raise awareness and money for his Detroit-area shelter. “Being president of a cat shelter I thought this would be a great way to help raise funds for the shelter so I could help take care of some more disadvantaged Detroit cats.”
