Let me introduce you to Rubble, the adorable cat who holds the title of being the “world’s oldest feline!” This lovely British kitty is over 30 years old and is currently living with its caring owner Michele Foster in Exeter, England. Michele became Rubble’s proud owner when she received this tiny kitten as a birthday present to herself in May 1988 when she turned 20.
Michele feels blessed to have a fantastic furry buddy in the form of her beloved cat. She considers her feline companion to be not only affectionate but also extremely loyal. Michele attributes her cat’s longevity and good health to the love and attention she gives him, which she likens to how a parent takes care of their child.
By and large, the feline is in good shape, except that he suffers from hypertension that needs attention from City Vets’ Dr. Shawn Moore to keep him healthy and steady. Dr. Moore says that Rubble, who is known as the oldest cat in the UK, is still doing well. Despite having to take medicine for his high blood pressure, Rubble is in superb condition.
In a recent interview, Michele was asked about the potential of her cat, Rubble, being nominated for the Guinness World Records. She considered the idea but expressed concerns about the stress and disruption that could come with such recognition. Despite Rubble’s remarkable age, Michele believes that he would prefer to live out his remaining days in peace without being bombarded by visitors or disruptions. Consequently, Michele and her family have determined not to pursue this option and instead permit Rubble to relish his golden years in serenity.
Cream Puff, a beloved cat who held the Guinness World Record for being the oldest feline, has recently passed away at the remarkable age of 38 years and 3 days. Although Rubble is currently the oldest living cat, it’s uncertain how much longer he will live. Nevertheless, his owner is committed to relishing every moment they have left with him.
It’s amazing how this kitty has survived for so long, especially since domestic cats usually only live up to 15-20 years and outdoor cats generally have a lifespan of 2-9 years.
On this special day, we send our heartfelt congratulations to Rubble as he celebrates his 30th birthday. We wish him good health and happiness that will last for many more years to come.
