Meet Rubble, the feline sensation known as the “oldest cat in the world!” This extraordinary British cat hails from Exeter and is a remarkable 30 years old. Despite his age, Rubble still lives his life to the fullest. Michele Foster adopted Rubble when he was a young kitten, on her 20th birthday in May 1988.
Michele’s cat is truly remarkable, isn’t he? He has been her constant companion for several years, and she fondly refers to him as a loving and dedicated pet. She believes that the key to his longevity lies in the tremendous affection and attention she showers upon him, treating him like a cherished member of the family.
Rubble, the remarkable cat, is doing great health-wise except for his high blood pressure. Dr. Shawn Moore from City Vets is looking after Rubble’s condition. Rubble is thriving despite his age and is believed to be the oldest cat in the United Kingdom. According to Dr. Moore, Rubble is only on medication for his blood pressure, and he is doing exceptionally well.
When asked if she would consider registering Rubble in the Guinness World Records, Michele responded that her cat still has a lot of life left in him. However, she clarified that they have no intention of pursuing the record because they think Rubble would not appreciate too much attention or fussing from people. Instead, Michele explained that Rubble is already old and simply wants to enjoy his remaining days peacefully without any disruptions. They prefer to let him live out his golden years in peace without subjecting him to unnecessary disturbances.
Cream Puff, the Guinness Record holder for the oldest cat, had a long and happy life of 38 years and 3 days. However, Rubble, the current record holder, still holds the title with his age yet to be surpassed. We can’t determine how long Rubble will live, but we know for sure that his owner will continue to shower him with love and care until the end of his days.
Amazingly, the feline has demonstrated remarkable resilience to have endured for such a lengthy period. To put things into perspective, indoor cats typically have a lifespan of approximately 15 to 20 years, whereas outdoor cats usually only survive for an average of 2 to 9 years.
Join us in cheering for Rubble as he turns 30 years old this year, and may he continue to experience a lifetime of happiness and excellent health! Wishing you a very happy birthday, Rubble!
