The largest domestic cat breed in the world

Cats come in all shapes and sizes, but the Siberian Husky will end up being the largest domestic cat breed in the world, according to the record books.


The world’s largest domestic cat breed has been located in an area of Russia called Kurgan since 2007.


According to Kristina Ginitski, the current president of the Kurgan Cat Preservation Society,


“The record is now over 5.3 kg and the owner is seeking a larger certificate,” according to CNN.


CNN spoke with Stella Gaidin, a veterinarian and owner of Kunlun, a cat zoo in Vladivostok, Russia, to help shed some light on the record-breaking cat.


“There are no other cat breeds of this size,” Gaidin said.


A domestic cat typically weighs about 8 to 13 lbs. The cat she’s referring to is a Siberian Husky, which ranges in size from around 1.5 to 3 lbs.


According to Gaidin, the owner of the largest Siberian Husky cat could be the owner’s grandfather.


Some speculate that the animal could have been a breeding animal, which would make the current record of 5.3 lbs – significantly bigger than the average domestic cat in the U.S.


No one has even been able to get close to the 5 lb mark in the past few years.


However, the real clue may have been a cat named Poornakha that was auctioned off by the World Cat Organisation.


Poornakha weighed 4.5 lbs in April 2016, which would make her the current largest domestic cat in the world.


The cat is still waiting for the final certificates to confirm her official title.


Others believe the record should be held by a Japanese cat named Choco Choko, which weighed 5.5 lbs in the 1990s.


In 2006, Cat Safari claimed to be able to grow a domestic cat to 5 lbs, which would still make the cat the largest domestic cat in the world.


Choco Choko still holds the record for domestic cat weight in the U.S.


How big is the largest domestic cat breed in the world now?


CNN spoke with a veterinarian in Moscow, who said the new record holder is the size of an average domestic cat in the U.S.


Some of the other largest domestic cat breeds in the world include


Japan’s Yellow and White Husky Cat (Chow) – 1.5 lbs


Chow (Cheetah) – 1.5 lbs


Alaskan Malay Cat – 1.2 lbs


Alaskan Malay Pet – 1.2 lbs


South African Flickergat – 1.1 lbs


In 2005, Taiwan also claimed to have the world’s biggest domestic cat – a 2 lb, 14-month-old cat.


Not all of the large domestic cat breeds come from Russia or Japan.


The cat in the record-breaking record for the largest domestic cat is a domestic cat from Ireland.


When it comes to cat breeds that are both domestically-grown and feral, the World Cat Organization says the average domestic cat weighs 1.5 lbs.


If cats in the U.S. were larger, they would not only be larger than a Siberian Husky, they would also be the most domestically-grown cat breed in the world.


The World Cat Organization ranks domestic cat breeds based on its research on the weight and size of domestic cats living in the world today.


The list includes large domestic cat breeds in the U.S
