Gill adopted Ludo when he was just 13 weeks, and she immediately knew he was special. She says “we thought Ludo could be the world’s longest when we started seeing clips in newspapers of these other cats that were a lot older than Ludo and looked a similar size while he was at such a young age.”
Gill says that her cat’s size does have its drawbacks for both her and him. For example, Ludo’s size makes him far less agile than other cats. He plods along more like a dog than a cat, and really can’t sneak up on anything. Also, Gill says that keeping up with the hair takes serious work.
Fortunately, Ludo is easygoing and has saintly patience. Gill says that he purrs while she grooms him and “loves being stroked and cuddled.”
