A 27-year-old British cat has just been officially announced to be the oldest cat living according to Guinness World Records. The cat, Flossie was verified as 26 years and 316 days old. Which would be considered 120 years old in humans. Flossie was originally found to be a stray near a hospital and then was adopted.
Cats Protection placed Flossie in a new home with owner Vicki Green.
"She sometimes misses her litter box or needs help grooming herself, but I can help with all of that. We're in this together," Green told Guinness World Records. "Cats Protection has a lot of mature cats in need of a home and they don't need to be high maintenance. All they want is a cuddle and somewhere warm to sleep. I'm glad that Cats Protection matched me with Flossie; adopting her has been rewarding for us both."
