Record Setting Cats:



THE SMALLEST CAT EVER


The smallest cat on record was a male blue point Himalayan-Persian named Tinker Toy. He measured only 7 cm (2.75 in) tall and 19 cm (7.5 in) long when he became a full grown cat at the age of 2.5 years. The much-loved cat were owned by Katrina and Scott Forbes of Taylorville, Illinois (United States). He was born on December 25, 1990 as the runt of a 6-kitten litter; he died in November 1997 at 6 years old. 


THE RICHEST CAT


Ben Rea of the UK died in May 1988 and he bequeathed his £7 million fortune to Blackie. Blackie was the last surviving cat of 15, who have all shared his mansion. The millionair antiques dealer and recluse refused to recognize his family in his will and split the majority of his wealth between three cat charities, with instructions to look after his beloved pet.

The professor announced it in the journal Science in April 2004.
