Meet Rubble, the feline superstar who has earned the coveted title of “the oldest cat in the world!” The charming British kitty is a spunky 30 years old and lives in Exeter, England with his owner, Michele Foster. Rubble was a birthday present to Michele when he was just a tiny kitten in May of 1988. Despite his advanced age, Rubble still enjoys good health and is full of energy!
Michele has been grateful to have a feline friend in her life for quite some time now. She adores the cat’s presence and considers him to be an affectionate and devoted companion. Michele attributes the cat’s long and healthy life to her unwavering showering of love and attention upon him, treating him with the utmost care as if he were her own child.
Overall, the cat is doing well although it has been found to have high blood pressure. Dr. Shawn Moore, a veterinarian at City Vets, is taking care of the feline’s medical requirements and making sure that it remains stable and healthy. Dr. Moore commented that Rubble, the cat, is likely the oldest in the UK and is still thriving. Although Rubble needs medication for blood pressure, he is generally in outstanding health.
When asked about the possibility of entering Rubble into the Guinness World Records, Michele expressed her reservations. While Rubble still has a lot of life left in him, she didn’t think it was wise to pursue the record. Her concern was that as an elderly cat, Rubble may not appreciate the attention and fuss that would come along with such a feat. Instead, Michele and her family want Rubble to live out his remaining years in peace without being bothered by lots of people. They just want him to be comfortable and happy in his old age.
Cream Puff, who had been recognized by Guinness World Records as the oldest cat ever recorded, lived for 38 years and 3 days. Although we can’t predict how long Rubble will live, his owner will undoubtedly provide him with love and care for as long as he is alive.
It’s amazing to think that this furry feline has been able to survive for such a lengthy period of time. Under normal circumstances, domesticated cats tend to live between 15 to 20 years, but those who are accustomed to roaming outside have a much shorter lifespan of anywhere from 2 to 9 years.
