Meet Rubble, a cat from Exeter, England who is now called the “oldest cat in the world” after celebrating his 30th birthday recently. Rubble and his owner, Michele Foster, have become best friends since 1988. On her 20th birthday she got Rubble as a present.
Michele thinks that the secret to Rubble’s longevity is the fact that she pampers him as if he were a child. Rubble has been lucky to find a caring mom. “He has plenty of life left in him yet, but I don’t think we will go down the Guinness World Record route as I am not sure he would like lots of people coming to see him or a fuss being made out of him.He is old now and would not like too much attention or be hassled. We would prefer if he was just left to live out his old age in peace.” Michele said.
Rubble has some way to live up the age of Creme Puff and break the record of him (38 years and three days). However Michele is proud of his achievement. Rubble was part of life of Michele. She was lonely living on her own so got him in as a kitten. He is very loyal and she loves him so much.
Due to his advanced age, Rubble suffers from high blood pressure and gets a regular medical checkup from Shaun Moore of City Vets.
“Rubble is quite likely to be the oldest cat in the UK and is still going strong. He is on medication for his blood pressure but apart from that, he is in remarkably good health.” Now i think we can congratulate his achievement and wish him have a good health.
