Smokey The Cat Is World’s Loudest, Guinness Records Confirms.

Posted on: May 10, 2011

A cat’s purr which is as noisy as a lawnmower has been officially recognised as the loudest in the world.

Smokey has gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records with an incredible purr that measures 67.7 decibels. And the 12-year-old pet has even been been known to purr as loudly as 92.7 decibels, which is what you expect from a lawnmower or a hairdryer.

But being the owner of such an obviously happy cat does have its downside.Ruth Adams, from Northampton, said:’It can be annoying if her purring starts as you are watching television and it has reached a romantic bit in a film, because it’s impossible to hear and spoils the moment.’

It’s also a struggle to have telephone conversations. ‘When I’m on the phone friends often ask what the loud noise is and they can’t believe it is coming from a cat,’ Ruth added.’I don’t know why she does it. She’s very happy and content, just very loud.’ Smokey originally atytracted attention when he starred in a purring competition in Northampton to support the cats protection charity.

‘I can’t believe Smokey now has a Guinness World Records title,’ said Ruth, who adopted Smokey from rescue centre NANNA in Northampton three years ago for her 10-year-old daughter Amy.

A statement from Guinness World Records said: ‘We are pleased to announce that Smokey, a 12 year-old female British short-hair cat, has been recognised as having achieved the loudest purr by a domestic cat at 67.7 dB (LA peak).’ Its editor Craig Glenday added: ‘Guinness World Records is a veritable cat-alogue of fantastic felines, and Smokey is a welcome addition to the family.

It’s incredible to think a cat’s purr can be as loud as a vacuum cleaner. Most domestic cats purr at around 25 decibels.’ It seems the only time Smokey goes quiet is when she is asleep. ‘She has always been very vocal and purrs nearly all the time,’ said Ruth .’She even manages to purr while she eats.’

Ruth, who runs an office park in Pitsford, also has two dogs and two other cats but none as loud as Smokey. ‘It’s either adorable or annoying, depending on what mood you’re in,’ said Ruth, who also has a son, Jordan, 12.

‘You don’t even have to stroke her to start a purring session. Often she’ll do it for no reason. ‘She can have sudden bursts of loud purrs and her throat gets dry so she makes herself cough.’It’s not just the volume of her purr which is unusual, she makes quite a unique sound as if she has a dove stuck in her throat. ‘My daughter thinks her loud purring is adorable.’

Diana Johnson, of Northampton Cats Protection, said: ‘I have never heard anything like her purr in my life. It can drown out your conversation. I’ve never found a cat with a purr that is anywhere near as loud.’
