Mews and Nips: British Cat Celebrates 30th Birthday, Making Him Oldest Living Cat in the World


Rubble, who lives in Exeter, Devon in the UK, has been with his human Michele Heritage since she got him as a kitten on her 20th birthday in May 1988. Rubble has now matched the age of the previous world record holder after celebrating his 30th birthday with a party at his local vet clinic, where he was treated to some of his favorite cat food and a free check-up. Rubble did not comment on whether he appreciated the choice of location for his party… For more about Rubble, please visit Metro News.

    Gives me hope that my sweet 19 year old still has lots of time with us! She will be 20 in January!

    That is absolutely amazing! We all wish that our cats lived longer and this beautiful Kitty has. I hope that they stay happy, healthy, and loved. ❤

    30 years is amazing. I know we always say we wish our cats lived longer. This one sure must have had an incredible life.
