Motzie the cat visited the KOB Eyewitness News 4 newsroom Thursday.

Motzie is a Savannah cat - the largest type of domestic cat. He’s actually a cross between a domestic cat and a serval.

Motzie will be measured this weekend in hopes of breaking the record for the tallest domestic cat in the world. He's 16 inches tall.

Motzie’s owner tells us his temperament is more like a dog.       

"He will stay up at the top of the cat tree when people are in the house, watching over, making sure everything is okay,” said Deborah-Ann Milette.

The cat is valued at more than $10,000.
