According to Guinness World Records, Flossie is the oldest living cat in the world at approximately 27 years old, which is the feline equivalent of 120 human years.

At the record-breaking age of 26 years and 329 days, the British brown and black cat gained formal certification from Guinness World Records, according to a news release. Despite being deaf and blind, she is allegedly in good health.

Vicki Green, who adopted Flossie after the senior cat was given to UK cat welfare organization Cats Protection in August, said: “I knew from the start that Flossie was a special cat, but I didn’t anticipate I’d share my home with a world record holder.”

“Considering how old she is, she is exceptionally nice and affectionate. I’m so happy that Cats Protection paired me with such a wonderful kitty, she continued.

Since spending her first few months of life in 1995 as a stray kitten near Merseyside hospital in Liverpool, northwest England, Flossie has lived in a number of homes.

Before her owner passed away, she spent ten years living with a hospital employee who had adopted her. The sister of Flossie’s previous owner took her in. 14 years later, her second owner passed away. She spent the next three years with the son of her second owner before being trusted to work as a volunteer at Cats Protection.

At that point, rumors of her astonishing age started to circulate and the search to verify her record began.

According to Flossie’s vet papers, she was 27 years old, which shocked Naomi Rosling, the charity’s branch coordinator, who was quoted in the press release.

According to the release, most cat owners choose to adopt a much younger cat because senior pets frequently spend their final years in shelters.

Green said, “I’ve always wanted to provide elderly cats a nice later life.” She hopes Flossie’s tale will inspire prospective cat owners to create a sanctuary for senior cats.

Crème Puff, the oldest cat known to live, was 38 years and 3 days old. On August 6, 2005, they passed away.

Five months before the toy fox terrier’s 23rd birthday, on October 3, Pebbles, the former oldest living dog, passed away. At 22 years and 2 months old, Gino Wolf, a dog who resides with his owner in Los Angeles, currently holds the record.
