Weighing in at a whopping 33 lbs and measuring almost 4 feet in length, Omar is one big boy!
Fun fact: his whiskers are also super long – almost 8 inches! No wonder that people thought he was a fake when they first discovered his Instagram account!
Indeed, hard to believe that when his owner Stephy Hirst first brought him home, he could easily fit in one of her hands! Now carrying him is a full-blown workout! In fact, when Omar stands on his two back legs, he’s half as tall as his mum!
Yet, he is all real. In fact, the beautiful ginger from Melbourne, Australia shares the Guinness Record for World’s Largest Cat with Barivel, another Maine Coon from Italy.
Big and famous
With his impressive size, it’s no surprise that Omar has gained a huge social media following. Every day, he and his much smaller tortoiseshell sister Ru bring joy to their 145k Instagram followers.
And we are not surprised…he is one incredibly gorgeous kitty!
