Stewie, the world's longest cat, has recently passed away following a rather long battle with cancer.

This feline was just eight years old when he died, and owner Robin Hendrickson has no issues admitting that Stewie's death caused her tremendous grief.

“He has touched many lives, and for that I am grateful,” Robin Hendrickson told members of the press.

Needless to say, Stewie's length turned him into a Guinness World Record holder. Thus, the feline measured an impressive 48.5 inches (1.23 meters) from head to tail.

Interestingly enough, Stewie refused to let his fame get the best of him, and often volunteered at a senior center in Reno, Nevada.

Seeing how this cat used to be a certified therapy animal, odds are he knew exactly what he was supposed to do when meeting the people who needed his help in order to cheer up for a while.
