The world’s oldest cat, Flossie, is 27 years old.

Described as an affectionate and playful cat, Flossie was born on the streets of England in 1995. Flossie took its place in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest-living cat and became immortal. Flossie’s record was confirmed at 26 years 316 days on November 10.

Born and later adopted in a cat colony in Merseyside, England, Flossie lives in Orpington, London, with her current owner, Vicki Green.

“I knew all along that Flossie was a special cat, but I didn’t think I would share my home with a Guinness World Record holder,” says Green, Flossie’s owner. “She’s so loving and playful, especially sweet when you remember how old she is. She is deaf and has poor eyesight, but none of that seems to bother her.” she continues.


Flossie is currently the oldest confirmed cat inside and is at least 120 years old to human age.

Happy new year Flossie…
