The world's oldest cat celebrated its 24th birthday


The oldest cat in the world lives in Bournemouth, Britain. Her name is Poppy. She is recognized as the oldest cat in the world (among living cats). She was awarded this title on her 24th birthday. That’s about 114 human years old.

Poppy was born in February 1990. At this point, Poppy’s strength is quite low. She is very frail and spends most of her time at home. Poppy is deaf and blind, but according to her owners, that doesn’t stop her from still feeling like a mistress in the house. Poppy’s recipe for a long life is diet, exercise, and the occasional kebab.

Recall that the oldest cat in history was Creme Puff from Texas, who lived 38 years and three days.
