RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The largest cat on earth has achieved the unachievable! The Draper Family, owners of “Scarlett’s Magic,” spent the past week in New York City with the GuinnessTM officials to celebrate the extraordinary cat’s placement in the 2011 GuinnessTM Book of World Records now on sale worldwide. The local celebrity and famous cat is one of a select few GuinnessTM World Record holders that actually make it into the famous annual book. “Obtaining a GuinnessTM World Record is a huge accomplishment in and of itself, but making it into the 2011 GuinnessTM Book is simply a dream come true!” exclaims Kimberly Draper.
But the excitement doesn’t stop here. Officials at the GuinnessTM Book of World Records confirm that Scarlett’s Magic has grown to an impressive 18.07 inches in height for an official update to her previous record for Tallest Cat in the World. GuinnessTM officials have also confirmed she was awarded a SECOND GuinnessTM World Record for Longest Cat in the World at an impressive 42.72 inches in length.
“This is such an incredible honor for our family pet to achieve TWO world records! We are so excited and grateful she is a part of our family. This could not have happened to a more loving, beautiful animal,” says Lee Draper.
Scarlett is a Savannah Cat, a unique, intelligent and loving domesticated cat with the look of a wild plains hunter and the docile nature of a family’s most loyal pet. A cross between an African Serval and a domesticated breed, Savannah cats can be walked on a leash, learn how to fetch and often enjoy playing in water.
The Draper Family are breeders of the Savannah cat and own the Savannah Cat Shoppe located at the Promenade Shops at Dos Lagos in Corona, California. The Savannah Cat Shoppe is the first and only retail store in the world exclusively devoted to educating the public about the Savannah Cat breed and offering the prestigious kittens for sale. The beautiful and impressive Scarlett’s Magic is at the Shoppe in Corona from time to time where the amazing Savannah kittens can be interacted with and purchased. “People come and watch the kittens for hours. It is a really fun place to go!” exclaims Marty and Matteo Draper, ages 11 and 8.
“Once you see our extraordinary habitat where the kittens are free to roam and play, you will not want to go home without one. Savannahs are simply the best pet anyone can ask for,” says Lee Draper. “And if you are lucky, you may even get to see and pet Scarlett and she can officially ‘paw-print’ your 2011 GuinnessTM Book!”
