“We were expecting about a 9kg cat and he got to that before he was one-year-old,” Omar’s human mama Stephanie Hirst said. “That’s when we realised he’s not nearly done (growing) yet and we’ve got a really big cat on our hands.”

“After we got featured on Instagram, I received a private message from (the record team), asking if we could email them, so I did and they explained the process to me and we started our initial application of getting the title.”

Stephanie said while Omar’s star is on the rise, he’s happiest lazing around the couple’s Croydon home in Melbourne with canine friends Rafiki and Penny.
