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.
