Longest cat

Meet Ludo, the longest living cat in the world. A Maine Coon, was measured at 3.88 feet long in 2015 and resides in the U.K. His human companion, Kelsey, doesn't mind Ludo's size since it means she can always locate him around the house.

Ludo isn't the longest cat ever, though. Stewie, another Maine Coon, measures 48.5 inches long from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail bone. (That's a little longer than 4 feet.) Stewie passed away in January 2013.
