Scooter, a 30-year-old Siamese from Mansfield, Texas, is the new Oldest living cat, according to the Guinness World Record.
Scooter was born on March 26, 1986 and lives with his owner Gail Floyd, who was there the day the kitten was born – and he’s been right by her side ever since.
Gail mentioned that Scooter likes to see new places and he likes people. Scooter has travelled to 45 of the 50 US states with Gail and often pays visits to the nursing home where Gail’s mom lives. This cat is loves playing with Gail’s hair and loves going on rides on Gails bike.
But this beautiful cat has had her pitfalls. At four weeks he sadly lost his mother, and in October 2014, Scooter broke his leg and has been undergoing medical testing and treatment ever since.
While impressive, Scooter’s record is still short of the Oldest cat ever — Crème Puff of Austin, TX, who lived 38 years 3 days (more than double the average life expectancy of the species) but we hope this beautiful cat lives a happy and longer life ahead.
