Remember animal panorama fails? These pictures are the opposite. They're as real as it gets.

The average cat is about 46 cm (18 in) in head-to-body length with a roughly 30 cm (12 in) long tail. And that's what we're used to seeing. However, there are breeds that are so far off these numbers, they look like mini lions. Or slinkies. Take the Maine Coon, for example. The title for the longest cat in the world belongs to one of these majestic guys. His name's Stewie, and The Guinness World Records confirmed that he measured 123 cm (48.5 in) from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.

Bored Panda has compiled pics of some of the longest cats out there, and they seem to stretch 'til infinity. Scroll down to take a look for yourself and upvote your faves!
