This cat has the loudest purr in the world

Merlin looks like an average cat, right? But if you watch the video above, you’ll soon hear that he’s a little different. The 13-year-old cat has recently broken the Guinness World Record for the loudest purr by a domestic cat.

Merlin was adopted from a shelter as a kitten, and is very much loved by his humans. Although they report that they have to turn the television up if they’re watching a film with him in the room. At almost 70 decibels, Merlin’s purr is louder than a dishwasher.
