How’d you like to have to listen to this all day? I shudder to think what it might sound like if you accidentally stepped on its tail.
Smokey’s owner Ruth Adams hopes the moggy can be entered into the record books as the loudest purring domestic cat on the planet.
The 12-year-old moggy is 16 times louder than the average cat when she purrs, reaching 73 decibels.
‘Guinness has very strict criteria,’ said Mrs Adams, from Northampton, who enlisted specialist help from her local college for the record attempt.
. . .
The record attempt took place in Mrs Adam’s house and Smokey was recorded with equipment usually used by music professionals.
