This tabby kitty, who is a contender to be the world’s oldest cat, actually celebrated his 31st birthday (which is the equivalent of 141 in human years).

His name is Nutmeg and one day, he chose his humans by showing up in their backyard some 26 years ago.

”He rules the house and he’s absolutely gorgeous,” Nutmeg’s humans explained to The Mirror.

Loving owners Liz and Ian Finlay lovingly took the cat in back in 1990 as a stray who befriended their own cat Spice.

When they brought the kitty to their local Cats Protection to treat Nutmeg’s abscess on the neck, they stated to the owners that the cat was at least 5 years old.

This would rightfully make Nutmeg the oldest cat in the world, but to qualify for Guinness Records, the owners have to show the documents that prove his age – and that’s quite tricky, however, they are working on it.

Just last year Nutmeg suffered from a very serious stroke, however, now he is up and going stronger, making those around wonder how many lives this cat has.
