This Cat's Purr Will Make Your Ears Bleed

How does his owner get a good night's sleep?

Meet Merlin, the 13-year-old British cat who's LOUD AS HELL. Any cat owner understands the minor annoyance of loud purring, but this guy reaches 70 decibels.

To put it in perspective, that's like having a dishwasher or air conditioner unit right in your face when you're just trying to enjoy peace and quiet. Listen for yourself:


He went on to beat Smokey's (another British cat) World Record.

His owner, Tracy, told Guinness World Records, "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."

So next time you think your air conditioner is acting up, it might just be Merlin chillin' in your house.
