Cat trying to set world record!


"She hit the headlines with a thunderous purr that was compared to a lawn mower, hair dryer or even a Boeing 747 coming in to land - and now Smokey has made a Guinness world record attempt to see if she is the loudest purring domestic cat on the planet.

Owner Ruth Adams, from Pitsford, Northampton, enlisted the help of the town's college to get specialist sound equipment to record the attempt and organise some official witnesses.

The attempt, at their home, saw the 12-year-old cat's purr reach 73 decibels - 16 times louder than the average cat. Smokey's efforts have been put forward to Guinness and the Adams family is waiting to find out if she scoops the title of world record purrer."

SO CUTE!
