On January 16, 1970, Jake Perry adopted Grandpa Rex Allen from the Humane Society of Travis County (Texas). Later on in the year, Madame Sulinaberg called him and said that it was her animal.

Ma, a female tabby, was arguably the luckiest creature on earth. Alice St George Moore, of Drewsteignton, England, was her housemate. When Ma was a kitten, she narrowly escaped being captured in a gin trap. Nevertheless, she was saved by the classical musician and her husband. The mishap left the cat with unique health issues, so she subsisted on meat from the neighborhood butcher. Mrs. Moore was asked what made their cat live so long, and she mentioned the fresh meat and the laid-back ambiance in their home. On Thursday, November 5, 1957, Ma had to be put to sleep.

#2. Ranked 2nd Oldest Cat: Baby – 38 Years

oldest cat
The second oldest cat ever was a black domestic house cat named Baby, who lived with Al Palusky and his mother, Mabel, in Duluth, Minnesota. He had never left the house where he was born until he was 28 years old. When Al married, his new wife insisted that the cat-clawed furniture be replaced and that Baby be declawed. That was the first time that the cat had seen a veterinarian. The animal did not like children, so when they came over, he hid behind furniture. Al attributes the cat’s longevity to the exercise he gets every time he uses his litter box or wants to eat. His food bowl and litter box are kept in the basement, which requires the cat to climb up and down 14 steps each time he wants to use them.

#1. Ranked 1st Oldest Cat: Creme Puff – 38 Years 3 Days

She then received an eyedropper of red wine to savor every other day. Her owner loved animals so much that he even had wooden stairs constructed into the house's walls so the cats would have a place to rest.

A Record Breaker? Lucy – 39 Years

oldest cat
It's possible that Lucy, a cat without official birth records, was the longest-living cat ever. She passed away at the estimated age of 39. From South Wales, Lucy was inherited by a man named Bill when his wife’s godmother died in 1999. When an elderly aunt came to visit him, she testified to having known the cat since 1972 when it was a kitten. Once Lucy passed away in 2011, there was some disagreement over whether or not she deserved the title. Although Lucy isn't listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest cat ever, it's safe to assume that she should be. is a website that provides you with entertainment information and creative ideas to refresh your days.
