Ludo is not only the biggest Maine Coon, but he is also the biggest house cat in the world. He loves his family especially his human brothers, guarding them every step of the way.
Meet Ludo the Maine Coon.
Ludo the 3-year-old Maine Coon from Wakefield, England is an extraordinary cat.
He was the biggest kitten in his litter according to Kelsey Gill. Before his first Birthday Ludo hit 20½ Lbs. Many who had met him during his kittenhood, couldn't believe he was a kitten and still had a lot of growing to do.
On October 6th 2015, he was measured by the Guinness World Records at 118.33cm (3 ft 10.59 inch) and was crowned to be the World's longest domestic cat.
"He's currently 34 lbs," Kelsey told Love Meow. Ludo has grown bigger since last year, and it's likely that this gentle giant has grown longer in length.

It's no surprise to the family that Ludo has a big heart for his humans. When he was a kitten, he was very protective of his little brother Cameron and was always by his side. The two became inseparable friends.
"Thick as thieves, Ludo is always at his side."
"He's so gentle he's a big softy he's like a big teddy bear, very chilled personality," Kelsey told Love Meow.
When the little guy wasn't feeling so well, Ludo kept him company the whole time.
"He enjoys being near by with both our boys it's like he's watching out for them."
As Cameron grew bigger, so did Ludo.
Ludo and his little brother Cameron share a very special bond.
Best of friends!
They have two other cats in the house. One is a 10lb calico, Arwen, who loves to snuggle with Ludo and give him baths.
"The smaller cat isn't especially small."
Their other cat is 14lb Krum, who is also a Maine Coon himself, but compared to Ludo, he's less than half of his size.
Ludo is the king, the protector, the gentle giant.
One and a half years later...
"Ludo's favourite thing in the whole world (except eating) is being around kids."
