So, my dear felines, what are you famous for exactly?

Cygnus

I'm a 2-year-old Maine Coon and I'm officially the domestic cat with the longest tail in the world. It's 44.6 cm (17.58 inches) long! The cat's tail is 17.58 inches!

Arcturus

And I am the tallest domestic cat! I'm 48.4 cm (19.05 inches) tall. Extremely tall Savannah cat

PostKitty

Wow - you're huge!!! What's your breed?

Arcturus

I'm a Savannah cat. I've no problem stealing food from the counter... Savannah cat stealing food from the counter

Cygnus

And my tail helps me to keep balance as I stay on guard while Arcturus is stealing food. The long tail helps him balance himself better

PostKitty

Ha ha, you two seem to make a great team!

Cygnus

Actually, there are three of us! We also have a third brother, Sirius. He's a 10-year-old Bengal cat, not famous for anything though... Cat jungle at its best

PostKitty

Poor thing... How does he feel about it?

Arcturus

He does not like to talk about it. When you're the middle child...

Cygnus

We love him very much though. Tail cuddles are the best cuddles

PostKitty

It's hard being the middle child... What about you guys, is the fame affecting you in any way?

Cygnus

I don't feel any different. Still doing typical cat things... Maine Coon cat on the fridge

Cygnus

...not so sure about Arcturus thoughLooking good, babe

Arcturus

Oh, come on!!! Does "MA, THE MEATLOAF!!!" sound familiar to you? MAA!!! The meatloaf!

Cygnus

Yeah ok, whatever... I do get a bit more cranky sometimes.Will I get my dinner anytime soon?

PostKitty

Is it difficult being you?

Cygnus

Sometimes. My tail may look majestic, but I keep dipping it into things accidentally... It's so long I forget where it ends! Maine Coon cat with the longest tail

PostKitty

You're like a walking feather duster! What about you, Arcturus?

Arcturus

I get some weird looks walking down the street... I give the same look back though! Cat taking a walk

PostKitty

That's my cat! Final question, do you have any photos of you in your kittenhood? Our readers would love to see them!

Cygnus

Yep, here you go! Pretty sure we could break the cutest kittens ever lived record, too! Back when the famous Guinness cats were just two little kittens

PostKitty

Oh, you're cute alright! Thank you for the amazing interview, my fellow felines! May the fame be with you.
