Could this be the world's longest cat?

Check out this extra-long cat!

A cat in America is hoping to claw his way into the record books as the world's longest domestic cat!

Five-year-old Stewie stretches an impressive 123.2cm from his nose to the tip of his tail bone.

His owners decided to go for the record because people were amazed whenever they caught sight of Stewie.

He's a Maine Coon, a breed of cat that seems to do well with this record... The current holder is also a Maine Coon but two centimetres shorter!
