Mews and Nips: World’s Oldest Living Cat is a Tortie


A 26-year-old tortoiseshell cat named Tiffany, who lives in San Diego, CA with her human, Sharron Voorhees, 73, a retired lawyer and lifelong animal lover, holds the Guinness World Record for being the world’s oldest living cat. Voorhees brought Tiffany home when she was seven weeks old. Tiffany will turn 27 in March. When asked about the secret to her longevity, Voorhees replied ” has a theory: It’s love. “l always say it’s just that she doesn’t want to leave me.” Read the full story on U-T San Diego.

    Everyone, humans and our pets would love to live to a grand old age.Most important is the quality of life once in the twilight years of a persons life.”Tiffany Two” seems to be in excellent health for her age as does her human owner Sharon.,Voorhees. Both, human owner and the cat seem to be helping each other in living life to the fullest

      I thought the same thing, Rudolph: that Tiffany and Shannon help each other stay young!
