This year’s release of the Guinness Book of Records has its share of record-breaking pets.

Cygnus, from Michigan, in the US, is swinging his tail into the record book, with the longest tail for a domestic cat, measuring in at 44.66cm (17.58 inches).

His brother, Arcturus, is also in the book for being the tallest cat, measuring 48.4cm (19.05 inches) and eats a pound-and-a-half of food a day, according to the Daily Mail.

A Great Dane called Freddy, from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, is officially the world’s tallest dog, measuring 1.035m (3ft 4.75 inches) tall.

The most basketball slam-dunks in one minute by a rabbit is seven and was achieved by four-year-old Bini the Bunny in California.
