The oldest cat living is Flossie (UK, b. 29 December 1995) who is 26 years and 316 days old, as verified in Orpington, UK, on 10 November 2022.
Flossie was handed into the Cat's Protection in August 2022. Naomi from the Cat's Protection expresses "We were flabbergasted when we saw that Flossie's vet records showed her to be 27 years old. She's the oldest cat I've ever met - around 140 in human years".
Volunteers at the charity knew they would need to find a special owner to cater to Flossie's senior needs and before too long, a match was made.
