World’s Tallest Moggie? — 13 Comments

  1. Our cat Burger (a moggie) is fairly tall. One of our dogs is 15″ at the withers, and Burger is taller than him. He also weighs 20 pounds.

  2. Here is a tape of Motzie being measured by a certified veterinarian we had to get. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fm-f1ZsfXqA ) We did it at a fund raiser cat show. This is the second time Motzie tries for the record, it was stolen by Magic’s new owners for strictly publicity and they find out again you can bet they will pay to have Guinness to come out and re-do the measurement all over again to use as strictly publicity for their cat shop (aka pet store for Savannahs) where I do have info they have been shut down by health dept for many sick kittens/cats one is an example: 1)ring-worm. I also have pleaded with Guinness that F-1 Savannahs are only registered as well as servals with TICA because of lineage tracing ONLY, F-2’s on are allowed in the show hall as exhibition/show cats. That is a fair allow-ability to measure cats. F-2’s follow an almost normal cat size. Motzie was the tallest triplet in his litter I learned.

  3. Judas is quite a large cat, males are usually much bigger than females. Early 1980’s we adopted an orange kitty (random bred cat)she was very territorial & would fight any cat that came into our property, August ’93 I noticed she had a plum size lump on her neck, took her to vet & it was an absess from fighting, vet kept referring to Snuggles as “he”, after surgery was over I told Dr Perkins that Snuggles was a spayed female not a “he”
    he was so surprised mainly because our girl was a very large cat (16 lbs).She passed away @ 19 yrs old, peacefully. Very loving but a large female cat.

    • I agree the other cat looks very small but is probably normal size. Judas has a slightly strange face – a large muzzle. I wonder if that is significant. Is he suffering from some sort of genetic disorder I wonder? I doubt it but…

    • Magic is alive still. Trouble sadly died on the road, which surprises me greatly bearing in mind he was a famous and very valuable cat. Someone got careless. I guess it can happen to anyone.

  4. The last Guiness Book of World Records ‘Largest Cat’ was Leo of Vermisso Maine Coon (no longer in business) in 1997. He was redubbed the World’s longest cat sometime in 1999 (maybe later). Anyway…

    I think they should recognize both. Knowing the Savannah is most certainly pertinent and interesting information. However, the astonishingly large moogie, Judas, being an anomaly of nature, deserves recognition. I wonder if we could start a petition of something to bring attention to it.

    • Nice idea. I think we would need to make sure the measurement was spot on accurate though. It seems to me that measuring to the shoulder is a bit tricky to get absolutely right.

  5. Wow but his proportions are normal unlike savannahs which look tall and thin. So he just looks like a normal cat so it’s important he be next to a normal sized one for scale. Those savannahs look tall anyway. I am suprised he weighs 20 pounds and not more. Dante wieghs just over that and alot of large cats do. I’m not saying he’s small though. 🙂

    • I agree he looks like he should weigh more than 20 pounds. F1 Savannah are rangy and weight more than 20 pounds. But Judas is extraordinary. Judas does look a bit unusual in one way. His legs look a bit skinny compared to the body. That is the impression I have from the picture.

      • Motzie is 24 pounds of twisted steel (all muscle) IF Magic is to keep her record she has to be remeasured by the new rules which is difficult to measure a cat by. Measurements are now the same as measuring a dog. Cats slink or crouch of something is placed on their shoulder so reality is measurement for Motzie is not accurate that were sent in. The present measuring method is very inaccurate for felines.
