1The Kitty With World’s Longest Tail
This gorgeous Maine Coon from Detroit s just one-year-old and weighs 15 lbs. His tail has always been long, and it just keeps growing longer and fluffier. "His tail is currently about 18.4 inches long (if you count his fluff, it's like 24) measured from the tail base to the end of actual skin," said Dr. Will Powers, a family physician in Michigan.
Don’t expect young Cygnus to get ousted from the top spot anytime soon. He is still growing, which means that tail is only going to get bigger.
2World’s Tallest Cat
The world’s tallest cat is here to reach into your heart with his supermodel limbs. Arcturus Aldebaran Powers, a Savannah cat from Southfield, Michigan, is now the World’s Tallest Domestic Cat according to Guinness World Records, measuring just over 19 inches. And, the giant meower is still growing, which means the record could be even bigger next year.
The feline isn’t the only record breaker in the Powers house. He shares his abode with Cygnus, the proud owner of the world’s longest domestic cat tail.
3The Cat With An Insanely Deep Meow
A cat with a voice with deep enough to rival the likes of Morgan Freeman and Barry White has become an Internet hero.
The velvet tones of Jack have been the cause of much amusement after his owner captured his meow on camera. Many have been quick to draw comparisons between the tabby and love song legend White, whose soulful voice was behind hits like "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" and "Ecstasy."
In a short clip posted to YouTube, Jack's owner can be heard laughing and asking him to say "hello" as the cat clambers over the kitchen work surface. He is initially too shy to make any noise but eventually opens up, letting out an all-mighty "meow" most have never heard from a cat before. The video quickly gathered thousands of views with some suggesting it is extremely rare for cats to be able to produce this level of depth in their voice.
4The Two Faced Cat
When there seems to be a new cute kitten gaining YouTube fame each week, it’s tough to stand out from the crowd. But that’s certainly not a problem for Venus—the "two-faced" cat who is the Internet star du jour. The feline’s face is perfectly divided in two—one-half is jet black while the other is calico. As if this wasn’t enough, her eyes are different colors, too—one is ice blue, and the other is green.
Venus is known as a chimera cat because of her genetic composition, and heterochromia causes her different eye colors. Janus, the Roman god with two faces, would have perhaps been a more obvious deity to name the three-year-old cat after, even if she is a female.
5The Emerald Green Cat
According to superstition, it’s bad luck for a black cat to cross your path. But what about a green cat? Well, if you find yourself in Bulgaria, this emerald-colored cat may give you a moment of…paws.
Fancy feast your eyes on Bulgaria’s beautiful green alien cat, an eye-catching stray kitteh whose magical, jewel-toned fur coat has been luring tourists to the quaint seaside town of Varna since 2014. That year, locals noticed the fashion-forward feline strutting her stuff on the streets with a less colorful, but equally cute, cat companion.
At first, Varna residents worried the kitty might have been painted green as part of a cruel prank. But as luck would have it, they learned the purrfectly pigmented fur ball turned herself green, repeatedly curling up for a catnap in an old paint barrel. After it was determined their furry friend’s life was not in danger, townspeople and tourists celebrated the kitty’s unique cat-eristic, offering her treats in exchange for a quick peek at her curious coat.
6Real Life Grumpy Cat
Cats with expressive faces have been known to become Internet celebrities (remember Grumpy Cat?), but sometimes this status on the inter-webs has a chance to lead to something more than having a fun merchandise line. Shamo, a gray cat living in the pet rescue center Rencontrer Mignon in Tokyo, is just about the angriest-looking cat you've ever seen, but it is this cranky demeanor that has the chance to give her what she actually must want the most—a forever home.
Shamo has been in the shelter for more than a year now. Because her unique little face garners so much attention, she has her own Twitter account and a dedicated page on the shelter’s website.
Although her face would make you think otherwise, Shamo cannot actually be that annoyed all the time, can she? But one thing is for sure – in a great forever home, she will be a much happier cat.
7A Cat That Wears Her Heart On Her Coat
When her soon-to-be humans came over to adopt her sister, Zoë charmed them into adopting her as well. She had a little trick up her...chest, a big black heart-marking. Remarkably, no one had noticed this anatomically correct heart patch before then.
Her humans fell in love with her on the spot, and the two tuxedo sisters remain united. As Zoë grew, so did her heart and her fur. Her longer coat has earned her the nickname "The Fluff," though she also goes by "Queen Of Hearts."
Zoë and her sister Izzy have their own Instagram account, where they currently have nearly 75.000 followers. At first, most attention went to Zoë and her adorable heart-marking. But recently, the sisters have become equally popular, as Izzy has amassed quite the fan base of her own, due to her irresistible and expressive face.
The British Shorthair mixes are similarly adorable but have different personalities. Izzy is fearless and adventurous, while Zoë is more cautious, yet extremely curious. Both kitties are very affectionate, towards their humans and each other. Just look at their pictures, and see if they can conquer your heart as well.
8The 24 Pound Cat Who Needed A Home And A Diet
Fabulous, fatty Faye was dropped off at the Jacksonville Humane Society in North Florida in dire need of a diet after making it through Hurricane Irma.
She was put up for adoption, and on the next day, people were lined up at the door to see her. At 24 pounds, Faye faces a strict but steadily-paced diet as outlined by the shelter’s veterinarian. (Most domestic cats weigh about 10lbs (4.5kg).)
Though the 12-year-old furry feline was brought in after Hurricane Irma, her previous owner contacted them before the storm for help. So shelter officials aren’t blaming the hurricane.
