14-year-old Bella Spink has a purr so loud that it has been likened to the volume of a boiling kettle.
The sound of a cat's purr can often be relaxing - that is, at least, when the sound produced by your feline companion isn't so loud that you have to turn the volume up on the TV to hear over it.

Enter Bella - a 14-year-old cat from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire whose extremely loud purr has recently netted her a place in the record books.

"She has been our family's companion for many years - we love her to bits and are so proud of her achievement," said her owner, Nicole.
Following a visit from an official Guinness World Records adjudicator, it was determined that Bella's purr measures 54.6 decibels - comfortably beating the previous record holder's 50 decibels.

"We've always known Bella had a really loud purr - we even have to turn up the volume to hear the TV over her purring - and that's always after mealtimes," said Nicole.

"So, when we saw that the record for the world's loudest purr was up for grabs, we knew we had to put Bella forward, and we're so pleased we did."
