The real Mr Peebles - the world's smallest cat

I saw this posting in Facebook and thought that it was a nice story to blog about but oh no.... it turns out to be a Fake. This is not Mr Peebles. It is a photoshop entry for some competition.

Who then is the real Mr Peebles? 
There is a real Mr Peebles - a cat said to be just 6½ inches tall and 19 inches long.
He’s been credited as being the world’s smallest living cat but Guinness Records does not seem to have a record of it yet.

Mr Peebles has become a star after living a bad life with his ex-owner, because he wasn’t loved at all due to his size.

Mr. Peebles is now adopted by Dr. Donna Sassman, who felt sorry for the sweet little guy. "I was at a house doing vaccines on a dog and saw Mr. Peebles. He was very cute and I asked the owner 'Can I have him?' She said, 'Yes, if you can catch him,'" says Dr. Donna Sassman.
A doctor at the clinic said that Mr. Peebles has a genetic defect, and he's expected to hold onto his title for some time.
Because he's already past the age when a cat reaches normal size, Mr. Peebles probably won't get any bigger.
"I have to feed him at least four times a day to sustain his weight," says owner of Mr. Peebles. "I do bring him to bed with me at night between my husband and I. And he curls up in my arms and sleeps next to my neck when it's cold. And one of his best habits, he'll lick me on the chin at night to give me a kiss."
Mr. Peebles is in the Guinness Records as the smallest cat. He weighs 3lbs (1360g) and is 6 inches (15cm) in height
