Lately there have been many kitty candidates (see Phoebe the cat) that were hoping to get the title to be the world’s oldest living cat. Guinness World Records just confirmed that Poppy the cat is crowned the world’s oldest living cat at 24. That’s 114 in human years.

Poppy was born in February, 1990. She is both deaf and blind. Despite her age and frailty, she’s still the boss of the house. Her secret to a long and healthy life is a good diet, plenty of exercise and some occasional kebab as treats.

Poppy is a tortoiseshell cat from Bournemouth, Dorset, the UK. Now she’s the successor to Pinky the previous world’s oldest living cat, from Hoyt in Kansas, US, who passed away last year.

Poppy was five years old when she was adopted by Marguerite Corner and her daughter Jacqui. She’s outlived many of their family pets, and is now living with four other cats, two rabbits and a hamster.

“We knew she is old but to be officially recognized is just great. We are all chuffed for her. I think all old cats deserve recognition of their achievement. As a family, we are so pleased that she is still with us as well.”

The oldest cat in history was Creme Puff who lived in Austin, Texas for an amazing 38 years and three days.

A tiny calico kitten survived the devastating tornado in Cedarville, Ohio after a meteorologist rescued her from tornado rubble amid the wreckage of several destroyed homes.

“While Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek WHIO TV was out in Cedarville surveying the tornado damage – he found a little something extra in the rubble,” WHIO TV reports. They promptly wrapped up the kitten in a jacket and kept her warm and dried her up.

They found out that the kitten belongs to a family whose house was destroyed and were able to reunite the kitten with the family. “Great news about the kitten, she was reunited with the family and seems to be ok,” Wirdzek wrote via twitter.

Meet Murcy the kitty who is quite special. “If your head is exponentially larger than the rest of your entire body, that’s cute,” said Cuteoverload. And we agree!

“That’s Murcy. She was born with twisted hind legs that just stick out behind her and kind of lay there,” said Josh Norem of The Furrtographer.  “But it doesn’t bother her at all.”

“Despite her disability, she sails around the house like any other playful kitten,” said Saving Grace Rescue. Just recently, Murcy was adopted and now living the life at her forever loving home.
