World's Tallest Domestic Cat Nov 2011

The world's tallest domestic cat at Nov 2011 is "Trouble" who is 48.3 cm (19 in) tall. He is owned by Debby Maraspini (USA) and was measured at the Silver Cats Cat Show, Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada, USA, on 30 October 2011.

I am told that the title of the world's tallest domestic cat has moved from Magic, the famous F1 Savannah cat born and raised at A1 Savannahs to Trouble. Magic is 17.1 inches to the shoulder. Magic is still the world's biggest domestic cat as far as I am aware. If I am wrong please correct me by leaving a comment.

The record is confirmed on the Guinness World Records™ website on this page.

"Trouble" was born and raised at Savannah Island Cattery and was awarded the title by Guinness World Records™ on November 17th 2011. You can see the certificate and the story behind the measuring on this page. He is a Savannah cat. I don't know what filial he is (i.e. first generation from the wild - F1 - or second generation).

Note: I have taken the liberty of publishing the photographs here in a montage to spread the word about "Trouble". I hope Jeff finds that acceptable. I have provided a link to his cattery.


  1. Okay, so there is no Record for Largest Housecat... Check with Guinness... The World's Longest Cat is Stewie. He measures a full INCH longer than Trouble... This really means that Magic is not really all that large. When Magic had the record for the longest cat, she measured in at 42.72 inches... VERY shy of the current record held by Mymains Stewart Gilligan at 48.5 inches. When you put together Stewie at 48.5 inches long and Trouble at 19 inches tall... Magic is a VERY SMALL CAT!

  2. Oh my goodness, let's not be silly! Wondering if you are a breeder who is commenting for the competitiveness? "Magic" is a legendary superlative Savannah female, and she certainly is not as you (belligerently) describe her. I'd hate to meet you at a cat show or in a dk. alley, for you seem to harbor quite a bit of animosity and bitterness. Let's lv it at that. -Cal, catperson
