Presenting Verismo Leonetti Reserve Red, the Guinness World Record holder for “longest cat.” This behemoth Maine Coon cat is 48 inches long from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail, and weighs 35 pounds. He is NOT fat! Leo lives in the suburbs of Chicago, and I’ve not yet seen him, but would love to. A cat like this can keep you warm in those Chicago winters. . .
Guinness compares Verismo Leonetti Reserve Red to the same size as an 8 year old child and his paw just fits into a size 2 child’s shoe. But if he were a human to Guinness’s scale, Leo would stretch over 8 feet tall and weigh 220 pounds.
Freida [his owner] says “We have to keep our eye on him when we’re cooking, because he can stand up and put his paws on the kitchen counter.” Leo’s dietary favorites are listed by Guinness.
