World’s Oldest Cat
Written by TFM on 02/12/2019
According to record books, the oldest cat ever in existence lived approximately 38 years and 3 days. Her name was Creme Puff, and she lived with her owner Jake Perry in Austin, Texas, USA from August 3, 1967, to August 6, 2005. Since then, others have held the tile of “oldest cat alive,” like Scooter, a Siamese from Mansfield, Texas. He was given the title at the age of 30 by the Guinness Book of World Records in April 2016, however, sadly passed away quite shortly thereafter.
Today we’re going to meet Rubble, whose status is unconfirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records, but that isn’t about to stop us from celebrating such a monumental milestone as a cat’s 30th birthday, it’s too exciting to ignore!
Meet Rubble, quite possibly the oldest living cat in the world today! Rubble is a long-haired ginger-and-white kitty living in the U.K with his owner Michele Foster. Michele recently was excited to celebrate Rubble’s 30th birthday in Exeter, Denton.
He’s a lovely cat, although he has got a little grumpy in his old age,” stated Foster. “He has plenty of life left in him yet, but I don’t think we will go down the Guinness World Record route as I am not sure he would like lots of people coming to see him or a fuss being made out of him.
