Party on, Poppy!
The world’s oldest living cat loves KFC and kebabs. Now blind, deaf and yet feisty as ever, Poppy is pretty much the coolest cat around. At the age of 24, Guinness World Records has crowned her the oldest living cat. This means 114 in human years.
She was born in February, 1990. Her family isn’t sure exactly how she’s able to hold on for so long, but Poppy loves eating KFC, chicken, kebabs, fish and chips, and canned cat food.
“Poppy is definitely the top cat and she is still quite feisty,” said Jacqui West, Poppy’s owner, at her home in Bournemouth, England. “If one of the other cats tries to eat her food she will bite them on the ear.”
If she wants to be dubbed the oldest cat of all time, Poppy still has a long way to go. Creme Puff, who lived in Texas, made it to 38 years and three days. She died in 2005.
