    Despite a claim by breeder Tiffani Kjeldergaard the owner of Pixel, a tiny Munchkin cat who was in the news for her short stature earlier this year, a different Munchkin cat has been named Shortest Living Domestic Cat by Guinness World Records for their 2015 edition.

    The officially designated new shortest cat is Lilieput, a now 10 year old female Munchkin cat, who measured 13.34 cm (5.25 in) from her shoulders to the floor on July 19, 2013, and is owned by Christel Young (USA) of Napa, California, USA.

    Christel Young is a professional pet sitter who found Lilieput as a stray several years ago when the kitty was two years old and adopted her. She applied to Guinness World Records via their website.

    “She is unique and I set out to prove that” said Christel.

    According to a feature in the Napa valley Register, Lilieput is a survivor who endured a near-fatal pregnancy and the August earthquake.

    Christel told the paper that over the years Lilieput has been the object of scorn and has been belittled as a “freak” or “weirdo” for her size and appearance, but now that she is a wold record holder the comments tend to be kinder.
