An enormous cat in Australia has become an overnight sensation due to its jaw-dropping size which may net the monstrous feline a world record.
The Maine Coon dubbed 'Omar' initially caught the attention of the Internet when his owner, Stephy Hirst, created an Instagram account for the cat a few weeks ago.
As often happens online, astounded cat lovers marveled at Omar's immense size and the feline soon amassed a hefty following worthy of its epic proportions.
Newspaper articles as well as television appearances soon followed for the unexpected star and its owner.
And now, Guinness has come calling for Omar to see if the creature could, in fact, be the world's longest cat.
