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).
The owners of this cat named it Nutmeg after it was found in its backyard around 26 years ago. They describe him as follows:
He rules the house and he’s absolutely gorgeous. Nutmeg 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.
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.
Although Nutmeg suffered from a serious stroke last year, he is now stronger and rocking.
