London, Oct 15 (ANI): An F1 Savannah cat has won the Guinness world title for being the tallest moggy of her species.

Scarlett's Magic, who measures 43.43 centimetres (17.1 inches) from shoulder to toe, is also awaiting the result on a second nomination as the longest (tip of the nose to tip of the tail) domestic cat.

The cat, which is 18-months-old, has a beige coat and dramatic auburn and black spots.

"We are absolutely thrilled," the Telegraph quoted owner Kim Draper, a Savannah breeder who also owns the Californian-based, Savannah Cat Shoppe, with her husband Lee, as saying.

"The Savannah is the most intelligent, loving and beautiful animal companion a family could wish for," she said.

According to Draper, Savannahs are becoming increasingly popular in California due to their unique appearance and learning abilities.

"They are active animals, they like to play, they like to be near their owners and family," she explained.

"Savannahs are for people who want a really unique pet and this is as close to a wild cat as you can get in the state of California," she added. (ANI)
