Michelle Foster was bored living alone and the Briton decided to have a kitten. Exactly 30 years have passed since that day, but next to Michelle there is still the same Rabble, alive and practically healthy.
Foster had no children of her own and she gave all her love and care to the cat, who by this time had developed only high blood pressure from problems. A mustachioed centenarian may well qualify for inclusion in the Guinness Book of Records. But its owner does not plan to apply to protect the pet from increased public attention.
And this is one of the first photos of the Rabble thirty years ago.
The previous oldest living cat in Britain—Nutmeg from Tyne and Wear—died in September 2017. Rubble has now surpassed the age of Scooter, a Siamese who had achieved the age of 30 and was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. Scooter died in his 31st year, aged 30.
The oldest cat in world history according to the record books was Creme Puff, who was born on August 3, 1967, and lived until August 6, 2005—a total of 38 years and 3 days.
