Cranked-up cat: Kitty purrs as loud as a lawnmower

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - A cat in England really knows how to be heard when it feels the need to speak up.

Ruth and Mark Adams think their cat Smokey could be the loudest feline in the world. Up close, Smokey purrs at 92 decibels -- about as loud as a lawnmower or hair dryer. The average cat purrs at 25 decibels.

Guinness says it has a category for world's loudest cat, but has not received any entries until now.
