Nutmeg, a tabby kittie, is a contender to be the world’s oldest cat. He just celebrated his 31st birthday! He chose his humans by showing up in their backyard over 26 years ago. ”He rules the house and he’s absolutely gorgeous,” Nutmeg’s humans said.
Nutmeg’s loving owners Liz and Ian Finlay rescued him in 1990 after he befriended their cat Spice. When they brought the kittie to their local Cats Protection to treat Nutmeg’s abscess on the neck, they were told he was about least 5 years old, making Nutmeg the oldest cat in the world.
However, to Guinness Records, the owners would have to show the documents proving his age.
Nutmeg suffered a very serious stroke last year, but now he is much stronger, making those around wonder how many lives this cat has. “He 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.”
