Is my cat the walrus everyone keeps telling me she is?

I recently have had a number of people tell me that my cat Rhubarb
is an unusually large cat. I had one guy tell me that she is the size of a dog, and that she is definitely the largest cat he's ever seen. Not that she's fat, but just that she's BIG! I thought she was normal but now that I look at her I guess I can see how she is big. I finally measured her and she is 22 inches from head to butt, plus another foot or so for her tail.
.. Is this big for a cat? (She's ~2 years old) What is the average length for a standard housecat?
(ps - you may remember Rhubarb from this question
. Yes, she is still just as dumb and clutzy, and yes I still love her so hard I can barely breathe.)
