Meet Samson, the 28-pound kitty whose owner claims is New York's biggest pet cat.
Zoo Zajac opened in its current location on Nov. 17, 2004. A few months later, Guinness World Records paid a visit. Zoo Zajac was, at the time, two-thirds of its present size, still large enough to earn it the distinction of the biggest pet shop in the world. Zajac lives on the second floor in a modest apartment behind his office with his wife, Jutta, and a mother-daughter pair of dachshunds. “I had to help her give birth here on the living room table,” he says. When Zajac is watching TV or relaxing in his hot tub, he’s never more than a flight of stairs away from his animal collection, just like when he bred hamsters in his basement as a little boy.
Germany isn’t the country where most people would expect to find the world’s biggest pet shop. Most German businesses are modest enterprises, and consumers there aren’t impressed by immensity in and of itself. But German pet ownership, like many German enthusiasms, gets a little weird. In the U.S. the humanization trend has ridden largely on the backs of dogs and cats, whose owners spend the most money on their pets but are the least likely to buy their animals in pet shops. Germany, however, has some of the lowest rates of dog and cat ownership in all of Europe. Instead, there’s an abundance of so-called exotic pets. Germans keep more small mammals—everything from chinchillas to ferrets to rabbits—per capita than all other Europeans, save the Dutch, and the country also has large populations of reptiles and fish.
