From Feline Companion to Birthday Party King: How One Owner Celebrated 30 Years with the World’s Oldest Cat

Introducing Rubble, the feline that has earned the title of being the “world’s oldest cat”! Rubble resides in Exeter, England and is quite a celebrity at the age of 30. His owner, Michele Foster, welcomed him into her life when she was celebrating her 20th birthday in May 1988, and he has been her faithful companion ever since. Rubble is a ginger and white kitty that has captured the hearts of many with his impressive milestone of reaching 30 years of age.

The feline has truly been a blessing in Michele’s life. As her companion for many years, she describes him as affectionate and faithful. Michele believes that his longevity is due to the abundant love and care he receives, just like a cherished child.

In general, the feline has been keeping up with good health, although he does suffer from high blood pressure. The feline’s condition is managed by Dr. Shawn Moore of City Vets, who ensures that he is stable and thriving. According to Dr. Moore, “Rubble is highly probable to be the oldest cat in the UK and is still doing well. He receives medication to maintain his blood pressure but aside from that, he is in exceptional health.”

When asked about submitting Rubble for the Guinness World Records, Michele expressed her hesitancy. Despite Rubble having many years ahead of him, Michele didn’t feel it was necessary to subject him to the attention and fuss that comes with such a title. Rubble is in his old age now and would rather live out the rest of his life in peace without being bothered. For Michele and Rubble’s sake, they would much rather have him left alone to enjoy his final years.

Cream Puff, the previous holder of the world record for oldest cat, lived for 38 years and 3 days. While we can’t say for sure how long Rubble will live, one thing is certain – his owner will be spoiling him every day until he crosses the Rainbow Bridge.

Allow me to paint a picture of the incredible feat this cat has achieved by surviving for so long. Ordinarily, domestic felines have a lifespan that ranges from 15 to 20 years. In contrast, outdoor cats only last between 2 and 9 years on average.

Let’s extend our warm greetings to Rubble on his 30th birthday and wish him a year full of joy and good health. May he continue to enjoy life to the fullest!
