Merlin from Torquay, Devon, in the UK, is the loudest purring cat in the world according to Guinness World Records with a purr that measures 67.8 decibels.
With a Guinness World Records adjudicator on hand to verify, Merlin registered a purr measuring 67.8 decibels, beating the previous record of 67.68 decibels set in 2011 by Smokey – another British cat.
Speaking of her record-breaking pet, Tracy said: "Occasionally when he's really loud I have to repeat myself. When you're watching films you have to turn the telly up or put him out of the room, if he's eating he'll purr loudly. I can hear him when I'm drying my hair.
"If he's cleaning he gets louder and sometimes if the telephone rings I do get people asking me what's that noise in the background, I tell them it's the cat but I don't know if they believe me."
