This is a junk world record. The cat is only 2 generations from a wild cat, hardly makes him domestic. There are people who domesticated mountain lions and lynx. The Egyptians domesticated Cheetahs. This cat doesn’t even come close.

Yeah definitely not the tallest cat. Tallest house cat maybe. Cat Stevens is also at least 3 times as tall.

The point is this cat isn't a real domestic cat, but rather a hybrid with a wild cat.

Guessing you don't know who Cat Stevens is cuz I was making a joke that must have went over ur head..

If you took the time to read the article, the cat is the world's tallest domestic cat, not the tallest cat in existence.

How is that your take when they said it wasn't a real housecat?

He's only 3 inches taller than my son's orange cat, with no wild blood.

17% difference. The difference of 6'0" vs 6'11". That's significant.

I wanted to see a house cat, as in it was so big you could live in it.

What about Savannah cats?

I've seen pet cats taller than this one.

This one is crossed with a Savannah cat. I think that's OPs point.

It IS a savannah cat, and only an F2 at that

Bengals, which this is are crossed with an Asia Leopard cat while a Savannah is crossed with a Serval, a different wild cat. Both have an extreme amount of energy compared to a plain housecat and many owners are narcissistic but lazy and can’t deal with them

The article says it's an F2 Savannah, so the grandbaby of a Serval.
