God damn it, look at this fucking cat. It is so long.

An extremely elongated cat. The cat’s length cannot be denied.

If only I could find a scratching post big enough for me to fit on ??

The cat’s name is Omar. Omar is a Maine Coone who lives in Croydon, Victoria. He is so long.

Yes I think I will have this… . . . . #mainecoon #mainecooncat #catsofinstagram #mainecoonsofinstagram #catsofinsta #catsofaustralia #giantcat #bigcats #gingercats

Omar reportedly measures in at around 120cm long. This would make him the world record holder for the longest cat on earth.

He also weighs 14kg, and is the size of a small dog.

I’m not very impressed with this fame gig, but at least I have my little brother watching my back ?? @penny_and_rafi . . . . #mainecoon #mainecoonsofinstagram #catsofaustralia #instacats #gingercat #overnightcelebrity #mediastar

Omar’s owner Stephy Hirst set up an Instagram account for her very long cat a mere two weeks ago. The account caught fire after being featured on the Cats of Instagram feed which carries some 8 million-odd followers, and after that she was subsequently contacted by Guinness World Records enquiring just how long Omar actually is.

The current officially verified longest cat in the world is Ludo, a UK maine coon who measured in at 118.33cm long in October 2015. If Hirst’s claims that Omar is over 120, that would quite easily make him the World’s Longest Cat.

Omar eats a surprisingly small amount of tucker for a cat his size (raw kangaroo meat and a handful of dry food totalling not much more than 100g per day), and still likes to fit himself into the smallest spaces possible, as your average furball is wont to do.

Either way, there you have it. The longest goddamned cat in the world could be living in Victoria. So when it inevitably decides to rear up and overthrow humanity, know it’ll be the Vics that are first to go.
