The world’s oldest Cat   6 comments

Missan a farm Cat from Sweden is about to gain a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s oldest living Cat. And judging by the right hook she is throwing in the picture below it looks like Missan even at her advanced age could go a lot more than 12 rounds doesn’t it!

Missan the worlds oldest cat

Åsa Wickberg, from Karlskoga in southern Sweden, found and promptly adopted Missan when she was a kitten in 1985.

But Ms Wickberg didn’t realise how impressive her pet’s lifespan was until she read a newspaper article about a Cat who was ‘younger’ and quickly made a few phone calls.

So move over Tiffany Two, from San Diego, California, who until now was considered to be the world’s oldest living Cat but is actually ‘only’ 26.

But Missan still has some way to go to better the oldest Cat in history! Creme Puff, from Austin, Texas, who sadly died in 2005 was 38 years and three days when he hung up his loafers, now that is old!

  1. I love to read stories of old cats- it gives me hope that mine could have such a long life. I wish they could all at least make it to 20.

    • I too hope that your Cat can make it well beyond 20. Many Cats do, I recall Twiggy the model’s Cat lived to 30 and of course like humans Cats have better healthcare these days if they are lucky and well cared for by owners such as yourself.

      My old pal Bumper lived with us until he was a very old Cat. Not a bad feat for a stray who had been on the streets for at least 10 of the first years of his life. It was probably the fact that when he settled in he didn’t actually do a lot, he didn’t particularly like going out and if he was too busy resting he would even leave his food until he was ready to climb down, or better still be gently picked up and carried to the food bowl.

      He was the nicest happiest Cat I have ever known and I miss him so very much even though I haven’t seen him in the fur for probably the best part of 30 years.

      I hope that occasionally you will stop by and have a chat and let me know the name of your Cat and how he or she is doing.

      In the meantime have a great Tuesday.

  3. Wow… 38 years old is a lot for a cat… Very interesting. Aquileana 😀

    • Thanks for the compliment. It’s great that animals who’s lives are far to short can live to a ripe old age. Just goes to show that nay animal that humans share their lives with are something of an investment in time and not to be treated otherwise.
