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.
