In comparison, cats are much older than humans. Reported by International Cat Care, a cat’s age of 6 months is equal to 10 human years. Adult age in cats, which ranges from 3-6 years, means the same as 28-40 years of human age.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners argues that a cat’s first year of growth is equal to 15 human years. The second year, equal to 9 years, only after that can be equated with humans. That is, three cat years equal more than 24 human years.
Although the average age is only 15 years, these cats are proof that this one human pet can accompany you into old age. The following records the oldest cat in the world, as reported by A-Z Animals.
Rubble – 31 years old
Rubble is a Maine Coon cat that lives in Exeter, Devon, England. His pawrent, Michelle Foster, took good care of Rubble until he finally crossed the rainbow bridge after 31 years together.
On her 30th birthday, Rubble even threw a party filled with her favorite foods and a free doctor’s checkup. During his life, he lived with three other Persian cat breeds and became a little sensitive as he entered old age.
Tiger – 31 years old
Next, there is Tiger, the little ‘Tiger’. This cat owned by Robert Goldstein from Spring Grove, Illinois has a tabby motif with a ginger-like orange color. His hobby is unique, sitting on the hood of his pawrent’s car.
Tiger also only drank from the bathroom tub. His best friend is a pitbull who often gets ‘pats’ from Tiger to keep him quiet.
Sasha – 31 years old
Living in Newtownabbey, Ireland, Sasha went through quite a difficult time before finally meeting the pawrent Beth O’neil. He is found in a shared cage and antagonized by his terrier, Jack Russell. Sasha, who was thought to be 5 years old at the time, had a deformity on her left side. Possibly from being hit or kicked.
