World’s Oldest Cat Is 31 And Still Gorgeous And Still Rule The House

In Entertainment

This tabby kittie, who is a contender to be the world’s oldest cat, has just celebrated his 31st birthday (that’s an equivalent of 141 in human years). His name is Nutmeg and he chose his humans by showing up in their backyard some 26 years ago. ”He rules the house and he’s absolutely gorgeous,” Nutmeg’s humans told The Mirror.

Loving owners Liz and Ian Finlay took the cat in back in 1990 as a stray who befriended their own cat Spice. When they brought the kittie to their local Cats Protection to treat Nutmeg’s abscess on the neck, they told the owners the cat was at least 5 years old. This would make Nutmeg the oldest cat in the world, but to qualify for Guinness Records, the owners have to show the documents that prove his age – and that’s quite tricky, but they are working on it.

Last year Nutmeg suffered from a very serious stroke, but now he is up and going stronger, making those around wonder how many lives this cat has. “He is not our cat, we are his humans and he never lets us forget that. Maybe that is the secret to his long and happy life.”

Nutmeg is a very senior cat indeed, but to the Finlays he is simply the pet they adore

“He is spoilt rotten… He comes in every morning at five am and we get up and feed him”

Last year Nutmeg suffered from a serious stroke, but now he is up again…

… Making us wonder: how many lives does this cat have?
