Social media's going bonkers for this big Aussie cat - Omar - and he may even be the longest cat in the world.

Omar is a maine coon who tips the scales at a whopping 14kg - that's three times the size of a normal kitty and the three-year-old from the leafy eastern suburb of Croydon, Victoria is very popular on Instagram.

The current record holder of the longest cat in the world is in the UK, also a maine coon, Ludo measured in at 118.33cm long in October 2015.

Although, the Aussie owners of Omar - who have had him since he was a kitten - believe he measures about 120 centimetres and may not be fully grown yet.
