Your first instinct when you look at this giant adorable cat would probably be, “Is this a mutant or a hybrid or what?”
It’s none. It’s just an extra large sized cat with a big heart, a loving master, and a huge internet fan base.
Meet Maine Coon Omar.
This gigantic hulk-like cat is just three years old, 14 kg heavy in weight, and 1.2m long in size.
Her owner Stephy Hirst lives in Melbourne, Australia. She welcomed her inside her home back in 2013 from a litter of kittens who were all of the same sizes.
Little did she know that this cute little thingy is gonna grow up to be as big as 3ft 11inches, and one of the largest cats ever.
Omar’s glorious journey to fame
The owner Ms. Hirst made a social media account for Omar less than two weeks ago and the photos went viral. Omar’s photos have been shared 270,000 times on the Cats of Instagram account.
Omar’s fame is enjoying the Television and print media’s limelight as well. He has been featured by some major Australian newspapers and on national TV.
Mr. Hirst stated that as soon internet got a hint of Omar and her overgrown size, Guinness World Records contacted her to submit Omar’s measurements.
Cats don’t care about fame or stardom like we humans do. All they care about is a comfy bed to lay in, a loving master they can trust in, and a home that is happy and fulfilling. Omar is no different. He is actually a bit resilient to his popularity.
“He hasn’t really been coping with all the attention. He had a little bit of a meltdown this morning.” Ms. Hirst told BBC.
Ms. Hirst is also resilient in her claim to fame also just like her darling boy and believes Omar should rather stick to his low-key lifestyle.
“He’s just looking forward to napping on the trampoline, chowing down on some more kangaroo and trying to keep us awake at night,”. Ms. Hirst said.
“I think he’ll be glad to go back to being a normal housecat.” She added.
