Oldest Cat in the World Wants Her Due
Things that may surprise you: There is no Guinness Book of Records entry for the world's oldest cat. Even so, the human handler-servants of Lucy, a Welsh tabby who's allegedly been torturing mice since 1972, would like it to be noted that she is the oldest in the world at 39, which would make the deaf but otherwise healthy cat 172 in human years, which would make her ancient. In terms of elderly cat fame, Lucy beats out Possum, 28; Kataleena Lady, 32; and even Cat World's oldest cat in the world, Cream Puff, who lived to 38. Plus she has a better name.
