Cat who weighs over 30 pounds and eats raw kangaroo meat could be the longest in the world

There's sleepy cats, fat cats and grumpy cats. Then there's long cats. Like, really long cats.

Meet Omar.

The fluffy feline hails from Melbourne, Australia, because that's where all crazy animals seem to come from.
