Mymains Stewart Gillligan, or Stewie for short, is as long as his name, coming in at a whopping 123 cm or 48.5 in long. Thanks to his incredible size, the 5-year-old Maine Coon has snagged the title of World’s Longest Cat in the 2012 edition of Guinness World Records.

“When we first got him, Stewie was just an average-sized Maine Coon kitten,” owner Robin Hendrickson told Guinness World Records. “There was no indication at all that he was going to be as large and as long as he did end up being.”

See just how big Stewie is for yourself in the video below:
