The Caturday Report! Meet Cye, The Worlds Shortest Cat

Yeah,  it's still Friday,  but I may not be around tomorrow. :)

(look at them adorable little legs. :))

Cye is one short cat! Guinness World Records has officially crowned Cye, a three-year-old male munchkin cat, the shortest cat in the world. Hailing from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, little Cye stands at a petite 13.6 cm (or 5.35 inches) from floor to shoulders, a significant 2.2 cm shorter than the previous record holder, Fizz Girl.

25-year-old Sarah Langille, Cye’s owner, has been a hobby breeder of the tiny cats for five years, reports the Waterloo Region Record. The naturally occurring genetic mutations of munchkin cats cause very short legs in the felines. Despite Cye’s record setting short stature, Langille says that she did not set out to get the world’s shortest cat, and only breeds a few cats a year."
