It is my sad duty to report to you that Stewie, the Guinness-certified world’s longest cat (1.23 m, nose to tail tip; also the longest tail, 41.5 cm) has died of cancer at the age of eight. He was a therapy cat, and I’m sure will be missed by his owners and patients.

Stewie the cat.
Stewie the cat.

      1. Diane! You KNOW people do not OWN cats! Cats sometimes see fit to adopt people.

        Poor Stewie – seems like he had a productive life.

  1. That’s quite sad.

    But, on the good news front, Monopoly has selected the cat as its new token, retiring the iron token.

  2. This may inspire me to measure our cat. Must remember to get out the measuring tape, bandages, and neosporin tonight.

  3. Is there a correlation between the size of an animal and the rate at which it gets cancer? Very naively, a larger animal should have more cells, and more chances for the cells to mutate. All else isn’t equal, of course.
