It’s raining record-holding cats in Michigan!

Cygnus, Arcturus’ roomie, is officially the domestic cat with the longest tail, carrying around a feather duster-like appendage that measures 17.58 inches.

According to the Associated Press, you can find this kitty in the pages of Guinness’ new book along with the World’s Oldest Bodybuilder, an 83-year-old from Los Angeles, and a woman who has natural eyelashes that are nearly 5-in. long.

Don’t expect young Cygnus to get ousted from the top spot any time soon. He is still growing, which means that tail is only going to get bigger.
