Two record-breaking cats are missing following a house fire in Farmington Hills, Michigan. 

The metro Detroit family owns the world's tallest cat and the cat with the world's longest tail. The animals are both 2 years old. 


William Powers says Cygnus holds the Guinness World Record with a 17.5 inch long tail. His housemate, Arcturus, stand 20 inches tall, also a world record holder. 

This past weekend, Powers' home was destroyed by a fire. William and his wife were able to get out safely, but he says he is worried that the cats didn't make it. 

The couple also has a third cat that lived inside the home. 

There is still hope that the three cats are alive. William left a couple of doors open so they could escape.
