Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

A cat called Stewie is hoping to claw his way into the record books.

He measures 1.2m from nose to tail, making him the world's longest domestic feline.

The five-year-old Maine Coon cat, from the American state of Nevada, measures precisely 123.5cm.

Maine Coons are a breed of cat that seem to do well with this record - the current holder is also a Maine Coon, but it's two centimetres shorter!
