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

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. 

Just last week, the cats made their first national TV debut when they appeared on Pickler and Ben

This past weekend, Powers' home in the 34000 block of Quaker Valley Lane 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. 

If you see the cats, call Farmington Hills police.
