Meet the oldest cat in the world, his name is Rubble! Rubble is 30 years old which is quite unbelievable for a cat, and he lives in Exeter, England. Michele Forest, his owner got him as a birthday gift for herself when she was celebrating her 20th birthday back in May of 1988!
He has been a real gift, Rubble has been an amazing companion for Michele throughout the years, and she says that he’s very loyal and loving. She attributes his long life to a lot of pampering and love, ‘just like a child’.
In general, the cat has been healthy, but he is dealing with high blood pressure. He is medically taken care of by Dr. Shawn Moore of City Vets, who’s making sure that he is healthy and stable.
Dr. Moore reported:
Rubble is surely the oldest cat in the U.K. and is still doing good and going strong. He is on medications for his blood pressure, but beside from that, he is in very good health.
When the owner, Michele was asked if she would enter Rubble in the Guinness World Records, she said:
He has a lot of life left in him, however I don’t think that we will go in the Guinness World Records route, because I’m not sure if he would like a lot of people coming for a visit, or a fuss to be made out of him. He’s now too old, and he doesn’t really like to be hassled, or attention. We would just want him to live his old age in peace.
The past Guinness Record most established kitty record holder’s name was Cream Puff. Cream Puff lived 38 years and 3 days. Obviously nobody can anticipate to what extent the cute Rubble will live yet we do realize that he will be ruined by his proprietor until the day he crosses the extension.
To give an idea about how incredible it is that the cat has survived for this long, the average life length of a cat is somewhere from 15 to 20 years. Outdoor and street cats have an average length of life from 2 to 9 years.
We’re all wishing Rubble a happy 30th birthday, and hopefully he will remain in a healthy state, and relieve from the negativity. We also truly hope that this cat will live the rest of his life in peace and good health.
He has a lot of life left in him yet, however I don’t figure we will go down the Guinness World Record course as I don’t know he might want bunches of individuals coming to see him or an object being made out of him. He is old now and dislike an excessive amount of consideration or be bothered. We would like on the off chance that he was simply forgotten about to live his old age in peace.
