British cat’s purr sets record

A gray-and-white tabby by the name of Smokey has cat-apulted to fame with purring so loud it has been recorded at a potentially record-setting 73 decibels. That’s 16 times louder than the average cat’s purr…

This cat is as noisy as a hair dryer, a vacuum cleaner, a small orchestra or busy traffic.

The people at “Guinness” are reviewing the recordings to see if Smokey actually set a world record.
