Meet Rubble, the adorable cat sensation known as the “oldest cat in the world!” This lovable British feline, who is currently residing in Exeter, England with his caring owner Michele Foster, has just turned 30 years old. Michele got Rubble when he was just a tiny kitten back in May of 1988, as a special birthday present to herself on her 20th birthday.
Over the years, Michele has found her feline companion to be a true gift. According to her, he’s incredibly loyal and loving, which has made him an invaluable part of her life. Michele attributes his long life to the fact that she treats him like a cherished child, showering him with love and affection.
Overall, Rubble the cat has been doing well, with the exception of his high blood pressure. Dr. Shawn Moore from City Vets has been instrumental in keeping him healthy and stable. The veterinarian believes that Rubble is likely the oldest cat in the UK and is still thriving despite his age. Despite taking medication for his blood pressure, Rubble remains in great shape.
When asked about the chance of Rubble being included in the Guinness World Records, Michele provided a considerate answer. Though she recognized that Rubble still had many years ahead of him, she expressed reservations about exposing him to the hype and commotion that often accompanies such acclaim. As an elderly feline, Michele thinks that Rubble would prefer to spend his remaining days peacefully without having to deal with visitors or intrusions. Consequently, she and her loved ones have agreed not to pursue this path and instead allow Rubble to relish his golden years in tranquility.
Cream Puff, a feline who once held the title for being the oldest cat in the world, had a remarkable lifespan of 38 years and 3 days. Although it’s impossible to predict how long Rubble, the current record holder, will live, we know that his dedicated owner will treasure him until his last breath.
Think about it, it’s truly remarkable that this cat was able to survive for so long despite the fact that most indoor cats typically have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years and outdoor cats only live around 2 to 9 years on average.
All year round, we extend our heartfelt greetings to Rubble as he celebrates his 30th birthday. Here’s hoping that he has a lifetime of good health and happiness ahead of him!
