He holds the record for longevity: meet Flossie, the oldest cat in the world

The cat Flossie, who lives in England with her human, Vicky, was born in 1995. Which makes her a feline of venerable age and for good reason, she is now the oldest cat… in the world.

Guinness World Records has awarded the title of oldest cat in the world to Flossie, a cat who currently lives in Great Britain and who was born on December 29, 1995. Flossie is therefore over 26 years old and should soon be 27. .

“I don’t feel like I share my home with her, I kind of feel like she shares her house with me, but she’s a nice roommate.”summarizes Vitoria, who therefore lives alongside Flossie, the oldest cat in the world.

In almost 27 years, Flossie has probably had time to have more than the seven lives that her status as a cat gives her. In any case, his life with Vicky is far from being his first, since the young woman has adopted Flossie already “senior” from a shelter.

Despite some health concerns (deafness and sight problems) related to her old age, Flossie, who would therefore be about 120 years old in human age, is doing quite well and “has everything she wants”, testifies Victoria, who hears accompany Flossie well until the end.

According to the Guinness Book of Records quoted by Le Parisien, the cat that has lived the longest in the world is Creme Puff, a cat that died in 2005 after 38 years of existence!
