A Siamese cat recently cited by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest living cat did not live to enjoy the title.
Siamese cat Scooter was just named the world’s oldest living cat in the Guinness Book of World Records, and celebrated his 30th birthday just last month.
However, owner Gail Floyd of Mansfield, Texas, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Scooter had Ԁied by the time Guinness conferred its title on April 8.
Dr. Tricia Latimer, a Mansfield veterinarian, says Scooter had lived to the equivalent of about 136 human years.
Scooter took the place of Corduroy, who was once given the title at the age of 26 years and 13 days.
Scooter wasn’t Guinness’ oldest cat of all time, though. That mark belongs to a fellow Texas cat who lived to be 38.. She Ԁied back in 2005.
