Arcturus Aldebaran Powers lives in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Arcturus is a cat. A very tall cat. (BTW - Arcturus and Aldebaran are two very bright stars in the night sky, so apparently he's a little stuck up)

Most male cats would be 8-10 inches tall if they stood on their hind legs. According to MLive.com, Arcturus stands 20.1 inches tall. And he's still growing. At 20.1 inches tall, that makes Arcturus the tallest domestic cat who's ever lived. Ever.

Boom.

And that's not just me or Pure Michigan saying that. That's according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Here's the story, with photos.
