The Guinness World Records has just named Scooter, a Siamese cat from Mansfield, Texas, as the oldest living cat in the world, and you’re never going to believe just how old he is!
Scooter is 30 years old! He was born on March 26, 1986 and takes the title from the previous holder, 26-year-0ld Corduroy from Sisters, Oregon. Scooter’s human Gail Floyd was there the day he was born, and credits his long life to his active lifestyle. He loves playing and is full of energy despite breaking his leg in 2014. Scooter has also travelled to 45 of the 50 states and often makes visits to the nursing home where Gail’s mother lives. He enjoys getting blow dried after a bath, and his favorite snack is chicken which he enjoys every other day.
Scooter has a few years to go before breaking the oldest cat ever’s record which is held by Crème Puff of Austin, TX, who lived to be 38-years-old!
