Length to Beam Ratio

How does length affect stability? If a cat has a 2:1 L/B ratio and
it's 40 feet long, how does its stability change if it's stretched to
50 feet long, yet keeping the beam constant, assuming everything else
remains constant? Better, worse, or no change? Is there a standard
way to calculate that?
