Flossie, 27, has some problems with her sight and hearing, but is generally in good health

Flossie is almost 27 years old – that’s about 120 years old in human age – and according to Guinness World Records she was crowned the oldest living cat in the world.

Flossie, a black-and-brown cat living in Britain, was officially recognized as the oldest living cat by Guinness World Records on Thursday at a record age of 26 years and 329 days, according to the press release. Although she has some problems with her vision and hearing, she is generally in good health.

“I knew from the start that Flossie was a special cat, but I never imagined I’d be sharing my home with a world record holder,” said her owner Vicki Green, who adopted her from the Cats Protection charity last August.

“She is so loving and playful, especially sweet especially when you remember how old she is. I am very proud that Cats Protection matched me with such an amazing cat,” she added.

Flossie has stayed in several homes since living as a stray kitten near the Merseyside Hospital in the city of Liverpool, north-west England, in the first months of her life.

He was adopted by a hospital worker, with whom he lived for 10 years. However the owner died and then he was adopted by his sister. After 14 years of cohabitation, Flossie’s second owner also died. She then lived for three years with the son of the second owner, but then her care was entrusted to volunteers from the organization Cats Protection.

“We were surprised to see that Flossie’s vet records showed her to be 27 years old,” said Naomi Rosling, Cats Protection co-ordinator.

Most cat owners prefer to adopt a much younger cat, with older animals often living out their final days in shelters.

“I’ve always wanted to give older cats a comfortable afterlife,” said Green, who hopes Flossie’s story will encourage potential cat owners to provide a sanctuary for older pets.

The oldest cat that ever lived was Crème Puff, who reached the age of 38 years and three days. He died on August 6, 2005.
