This cat named Rubble has become the oldest cat in the world. Rubble is a 31-year-old cat that lives in Exeter, England. Michele Foster, the owner of Rubble, got the white and ginger cat as a present for her 20th birthday. It was a kitten back in May 1988 when they first met.
She couldn’t choose a better gift for herself! Rubble accompanied Michele for 31 years and she loves him endlessly. He has been loyal and loving throughout all these years. Michel took great care and pampered him “like a child”.
Despite having high blood pressure, this kitty has been relatively healthy. Dr. Shawn Moore of City Vets took care of Rubble’s health and well-being. Dr. Moore said: “Rubble is quite likely to be the oldest cat in the UK and is still going strong. He is on medication for his blood pressure but apart from that, he is in remarkably good health.”
They asked Michele if she wants to enter Rubble into the Guinness World Records and she responded: “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. He is old now and would not like too much attention or be hassled. We would prefer if he was just left to live out his old age in peace.”
Cream Puff was the previous Guinness Record oldest kitty who lived 38 years and 3 days. Rubble the adorable kitty outlived most of the cats and no one can predict how long he will live. Bit his owner will continue to spoil him until the last day.
It is remarkable how this cat survived this long and lived without many health issues. To clear things up, domestic cats live on an average of 15 – 20 years and outdoor cats live about 2 – 9 years.
Let’s all wish a very happy birthday to this amazing cat and hope he lives for many healthy days ahead.
