The record for the loudest cat purr was held by Bella, a 14-year-old cat from central England. A credit to its owner.
A snore in history. Bella, a 14-year-old cat who lives with her owner Nicole in Huntington, United Kingdom, broke the world record for the loudest purr by a living cat and entered the Guinness Book of Records.
The registration is approved by the registration company With the help of a sound engineer and an official referee, he traveled to the city in central England. The latter, after a bowl of food, led Bella into a room equipped with microphones where the cat could purr at will.
After a few minutes of waiting, the verdict was in: the humming registered at 54.6 decibels, the equivalent of a washing machine.
An absolute feat of two British cats
“We always knew Bella was very loud: she had to turn up the volume to listen to the television in her burrs and always after she ate,” said her mistress.
The absolute record recorded by the organization, whether a living or dead cat, is 67.8 decibels, with Smokey and Merlin, two British cats already dead.
