See the video in large format. The worlds tallest pet cat is MAGIC (see above) a female F1 Savannah bred and raised by A1 Savannahs which is owned and run by Martin (see video below) & Kathrin Stucki. Scarlett’s Magic now is now owned by Lee & Kim Draper of Bella Gattini Cattery. They were the first to open a very special shop where customers can interact with Savannah cats before purchasing. I made a post about it: The Savannah Cat Shoppe.
Above is a video of Martin Stucki of A1 Savannahs talking to Helmi Flick the world’s best cat photographer. A1 Savannahs bred and raised MAGIC. Martin is not holding Magic in this picture. The video is here because it shows the cattery and A1 Savannahs do a lot to ensure that their cats are extremely well socialised and it shows in MAGIC.
I have made a couple of videos of Magic, which were made before the Guinness World Records™ title of the worlds tallest pet cat was bestowed upon this magical cat. The title is breaking news as they say. You can see the videos in large format on these pages:
There are some outstanding issues though that I am waiting on and working on. Scarlett’s Magic may also be the largest or biggest pet cat but that depends on the other dimension: her length. I think this is currently being investigated.
Also I am not sure at the moment how the Guinness World Records™ people describe a “pet cat”. I presume they mean a domestic cat but even wild cats can be domesticated (or can they?); so this is an interesting subject.
As I understand it Scarlett’s Magic is 17.1 inches to the shoulder. That is the way you measure height in a cat, a bit like in a horse, I guess. By the way this just beats Motzie another very famous cat.
Motzie is an F2 Savannah cat also from A1 Savannahs and who lives with Deborah-Ann Milette. I think Motzie is 16+ inches to the shoulder. So I would say that Motzie is probably the world’s second tallest pet cat. Motzie is a great cat too and he does charity work! – Savannah Cat Assists Children.
Here is a picture of Motzie, the worlds tallest pet cat bar one:

Here is a map of some Savannah cat breeders. There are many more particularly in the USA. This is a bare bones map for others to add to if they want to be on it. The original can be adjusted. It is here: Google Savannah My Maps map.
