The oldest cat in the world is 26 years old

New world record. Flossie, 26, is the oldest living cat on earth. If the animal is generally in good health, “he is deaf and his sight is deteriorating”, explains his owner Vicki Green. 26 years, this corresponds to 120 years in human age, recalls the Guinness Book of Records.

During her long life, the female was adopted by several owners, specifies the Guinness on its site. After living with different families, Flossie was entrusted last August to Cats Protection, a charity dedicated to caring for stray cats. “We were flabbergasted when we saw that Flossie’s veterinary records showed she was almost 27,” said Naomi Rosling, the organization’s coordinator. It was through this association that Flossie met her current British owner.

If the pet is officially the oldest living cat in the world, it is still far from the historical record, held by a cat born in Texas in 1967 and died at the age of 38 years and 3 days.
