Noisiest Cat

My favourite Friday headline, seen here on the BBC website:


Guinness World Records announced Smokey, 12, who is a British short-hair cat, achieved the loudest purr by a domestic cat, peaking at 67.7 dB.


He can purr as loud as a vacuum cleaner apparently!



And my favourite: 


Guinness World Records is a veritable catalogue of fantastic felines, and Smokey is a welcome addition to the family.


Way to go Smokey!  Puuuurrrrrrrr.


Anyone else think he looks like a cat that would kick ass anyway? He's a No-messing kind of moggie.  He was going to get that award, come hell or high water.


That's a Paddington Hard Stare if ever I saw one!


(And for those of you not familiar with Paddington Bear, he was a famous story-book bear, with a fearsome stare when he disapproved of something or someone!)

  1. My dog purrs. Apparently, a lot of Golden Retrievers do it.
    But this cat looks like a champ! Love that facial expression.

  2. I hope Smokey doesn't sleep in his owner's bed at night, keeping him awake with that world-record-breaking purr!

  3. Gotta love a cat that purrs that loud. I think the sound of purring is soothing.

  4. LOL!

    Awww... he's lovely.

    I need a cat like that to blame my purring (read: snoring!) on! ;-)
