Some house cats are not only cute companions, but also have such extraordinary talent that they make it into the Guinness Book of Records.

  • The dog with the longest eyelashes is Coco, a poodle-Newfoundland mix.

    His eyelashes are reddish and exactly 17.8 centimeters long.

    You can find the Guinness World Records entry here.

  • Bibi stacks the most dice on her cat's paw - ten of them.

  • Most tennis balls held in the mouth by a dog: Finley, the golden retriever, still holds this record four years later.

    Goldie was able to grab six balls in his attempt.

    The Guinness World Records entry can be found here.

  • “Most tricks performed by a cat in a minute” goes under the cat name Didga.

    Together with her owner Robert Dollwet, Didga successfully completed 20 tricks.

    You can find out what tricks the cat lady has in her repertoire in the Guinness World Records entry.

  • In September 2014, 109 dogs balanced a treat on their noses at the same time, setting the record for “Most Dogs to Balance a Treat on their Nose.”

    The spectacle took place in Hong Kong and the record has not been broken to this day.

    The organizer had previously made headlines with the records for the largest dog obedience lesson, the most people brushing dog teeth at the same time and the largest dog grooming lesson.

  • The “loudest purr of a domestic cat of all time” is attributed to two cats.

    Both the male cat Smokey and the male cat Merlin independently achieved a purring volume of 67.8 decibels.

    The two velvet paws are as loud as a vacuum cleaner.

    You can find the Guinness World Records entry here.

    By the way, the loudest dog bark is 113.1 decibels.

    For comparison: the noise of a jet aircraft is estimated at around 120 decibels.

  • “The fastest 30 meters on a scooter by a dog” was covered by Norman, the scooter dog, in July 2013.

    The then four-year-old Briard only needed 20.77 seconds.

  • Lou, a Black and Tan Coonhound, has the longest dog ears in the world.

    His two ears together are 68 centimeters long.

    Lou is even related to the previous record holder.

  • In honor of Guinness World Records Day 2015, bulldog Otto broke this record attempt: “Longest human tunnel crossed by a dog.”

    That's not all: Otto didn't make the journey on foot, but on a skateboard.

    You can find the Guinness World Records entry and the amusing video here.

  • Brandy claims the title for the longest dog tongue ever.

    The boxer lady is the proud owner of a 43 centimeter long tongue.

  • Keon, an Irish wolfhound, took the world record for the longest tail.
