It’s official – he’s HUGE!  Meet the world’s biggest cat!
His name is Rupert and he’s a Maine Coon, which is a breed of domestic cat.  And he’s the biggest cat there is in the world.
He’s three times the size of the average cat, but he’s not done growing!  Coon experts say Rupert may get to 75 pounds.  “He’s got plenty of room to grow,” said leading cat expert, Scott Sieleki.

Rupert is almost nearly three years old.  And in addition to being the world’s fattest cat, Rupert plans on being the world’s oldest cat.  “He’ll be around another 20 years,” said Sieleki.

Gizmodo did a cat comparison. Ergo, “a wildcat like the male bobcat can get up to exactly the same weight that Rupert is going to be. The Canada lynx goes only up to 24 pounds, while the Iberian lynx can reach 28 pounds. Only a male specimen of the Eurasian lynx would be bigger than Rupert, at 40 to 66 pounds.”  For now.
Rupert also has large teeth and cat rip through the bone on any cat handler’s arms.
And, of course, Rupert uses a lotta litter!

  1. In the awesome pattern of things you actually get an A+ just for effort. Exactly where you confused me personally was in the specifics. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more correct at this point. Having said that, let me reveal to you what exactly did deliver the results. Your text is actually extremely convincing and that is most likely the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, whilst I can easily notice the leaps in reason you come up with, I am definitely not convinced of how you seem to unite the ideas which make the conclusion. For the moment I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however trust in the foreseeable future you link the facts much better.

  2. That has to be a typo or I better call the Maine Coon Association. My main Coons Sydney and Sebastion weigh in at 30 and 35 pounds. One is 24 years old and the other is 7, they've been past 20 pounds since they were two! But of course my cats can't show because they aren't 'intact'.. or so i was told by the local show officials around here. Sorry, I'm a responsible pet owner who doesn't like rancid Tom-Cats spraying my house.
