The Loudest Cat Jumps Into The Guinness Records

By Suparna Chakaraborthy
Cat is a common pet and also one of the most friendly animals. As you enter your home after a long day the sweet cat's purr sooth's away all your tiredness but what if your cat purr's at 92 decibels?

A pet cat named Smokey, has entered in to the Guinness Book of Records, with the title of the cat with the loudest purr. Cats purr normally measures at 25 decibels but Smokey, the cat with the loudest purr enters the Guinness Book of Records with a purr of 92 decibels, a sound similar to Boeing 737.

The cat with the loudest purr is owned by Ruth and Mark Adams and they say that "She has always been very vocal and purrs at some level nearly all the time. She even manages to purr while she eats. The only time she is quiet is when she is asleep. When I'm on the phone friends often ask what the loud noise is and they can't believe it is coming from a cat."

The spokesperson of the Guinness World Records said, "The Guinness World Record for the loudest scream by a human is 129dB. If Smokey the cat is able to purr at over 80dB it would be an astonishing feat." Thus, smokey has been declared as the cat with the loudest purr.
