Smokey the super-purring cat

Smokey, a gray and white tabby cat,  gets some tasty bacon from owner Ruth Adams for purring like a champ, in Northampton , England. A British community college says it has a recorded a house cat whose  super loud lawnmower-like purr hit 73 decibels, 16 times louder than the average feline. Northampton College in central England said Wednesday, March 30, 2011, that it had dispatched a music team with specialist sound equipment to record 12-year-old Smokey.

The recording has been submitted to the Guinness World Records.

Smokey even has his own website:
