A 3-pound cat in Pekin, Ill., has been verified as the world's smallest domestic cat. The 2-year-old cat, named Mr. Peebles, is officially listed as the smallest living domestic cat by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Mr. Peebles lives in the Good Shepherd Veterinary Clinic in Pekin. The clinic's employees serve as collective co-owners.
A doctor at the clinic said that Mr. Peebles has a genetic defect. And he's expected to hold onto his title for some time.
Because he's already past the age when a cat reaches normal size, Mr. Peebles probably won't get any bigger, according to the report. - Local6
