    How big was the world's largest house cat?

    A:

    The Guinness World Records association recognizes the largest cat alive based on the separate categories of length and height, meaning there can technically be two cats that qualify as the world's largest house cat, though both titles have at various times been held by a single cat. According to the Guinness World Records, as of 2013, the longest cat in the world was a Maine coon named Stewie, who clocked in at 48.5 inches long. As of 2011, the Guinness World Records holder of the world's tallest cat title is a Savannah cat named Trouble, who stands at 19 inches tall when measured from shoulder to toe.
