The world's tallest domestic cat is apparently living in California. "Scarlett's Magic" showed off her height at the Yorba Linda Public Library on Thursday.
Scarlett is a F-1 Savannah cat, a mix between an African wild cat and a domestic house cat. She is 17.1 inches tall from shoulder to toe, and according to the Guinness Book of World Records that makes her top cat.
Her owner says she eats a normal diet of cat food supplemented with raw chicken legs as treats.
F-1 Savannahs are a recognized breed that sometimes sell for tens of thousands of dollars.
