The world's longest domestic cat, a 48.5in (1.23m) Maine Coon named Stewie, has died at the age of eight.
Stewie's owner, Robin Hendrickson, said record-holding cat died on Monday evening after battling cancer.
The pet, of Reno, Nevada, was awarded the record, measured from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail, by the Guinness Book of Records in 2010.
The cat was a certified therapy animal that frequently visited a local senior centre near his home.
"Stewie was always very social and loved meeting new people," Ms Hendrickson said. "He has touched many lives, and for that I am grateful."
He was also the record-holder for world's longest cat tail
