RENO, Nev. (AP) — Stewie the Cat, the longest domestic cat in the world at more than 4 feet long from nose to tail, has died. Stewie was surrounded by family when he succumbed to a yearlong battle with cancer Monday evening at his Reno home, owner Robin Hendrickson said Tuesday. He was 8. Guinness World Records declared Stewie the record-holder in August 2010, measuring 48.5 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.

If I had to live in Nevada, I think I’d die too.

We had a huge Maine Coon cat but I never considered measuring him.

Maine Coon they can be huge. Our kids have a couple of them, they’re big, but not as big as that cat. Best thing about the breed, they act like dogs :) They run to greet you at the door, play fetch, shake hands, etc.

I submitted our cat “Smiley” to Guiness as the longest cat. Before I glued some whiskers and a couple of cardboard ears on him, he was an alligator. They almost accepted him, but one of the judges remembered there aren’t any green cats.

Our vet raises Maine Coons and she has several that are official “greeters” and blood donors that live in the office. They are the MOST sweetest and friendly kittehs I have ever known. And they ARE huge! Good thing they have such nice personalities - a mean one could do a lot of damage.

Her name is Mosi (rhymes with Rosie). She just turned 9 weeks. Picture here is 4 weeks old. She’s 100% Maine Coon.

Maine Coon cat Stewie died of cancer.

Our maine coon cat Mack (28lbs-Big teddy bear) passed away at 8 years from a very rapid gastric cancer. Oddly our neighbors suffered the same.

Sadly, the Cat has left an emptiness with our family until this day.

Stewie (?), I thought the Cat’s name was John Holmes.
