Home / Funny / Animals / Elder Cat Takes The Record For The Loudest Purr In The World


A 14-year-old Cambridgeshire cat  has broken the Guinness World Record for  loudest purr. Bella, from Huntingdon, reached a magnificent and mind-blowing level of 54.6 decibels, the equivalent  of a kettle boiling. Nicole Spink, Bella's proud owner, said: "We couldn't be happier that Bella has broken a world record. She has been a part of our family for many years and we love her more than anything. We are extremely proud of her accomplishments.”

Official Guinness World Records adjudicator Dave Wilson, who oversaw Bella's record attempt, said: "Any day with the possibility of a new world record is always an exciting day, so we anxiously wait to see if Bella will achieve it. "I was there," he said. 

Mr. Wilson and a sound engineer prepared a room in Bella's house to block out outside noise and installed recording equipment before she sat down on her favourite pillow and began purring. Although Bella had to purr his throat louder than 50 decibels to achieve this record, Wilson said "the results were immediately obvious."

Spink said: ``We've always known that Bella purrs very loudly, and we had  to turn up the volume to hear the TV above her purrs.'' .It's always after the meal.'' 

"When we saw that the record for the world's loudest purr was being targeted, we knew we had to put Bella in front of her. And we're so glad we did. is." 

"It's going to have a very prominent place in the house," Spink said of Bella's new Guinness World Records certificate.
