Stewie the world's longest cat dies; Nev. owner says 48.5-inch feline lost battle with cancer

The Nevada owner of the longest domestic cat in the world says Stewie has died.

Guinness World Records declared Stewie the Cat the record-holder in August 2010, measuring 48.5 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail.

Robin Hendrickson told KOLO-TV in Reno that Stewie lost his battle with cancer at about 7:30 p.m. Monday. He was 8 years old.

Hundreds of fans have flooded Stewie's Facebook site with memories and condolences.

The Maine Coon cat's full name was Mymains Stewart Gilligan. Hendrickson bought him from a breeder in Hermiston, Ore., in 2005.

The previous record-holder, Leo, owned by Frieda Ireland of Chicago, died several years ago. There's no word yet from Guinness about a new record-holder.
