RIP Sweet Rubble ❤
The world’s oldest cat has di.ed at the age of 31. Rubble, the stunning Maine Coon, was given to his owner, Michele Heritage, as a 20th birthday gift, and has been with her ever since.
Michele, 52, has paid tribute to her beloved fur-baby, who became the oldest known cat in the world after reaching his 31st birthday. That’s almost 150 years old in cat years!
The elderly cat was healthy, with no known health problems. The gentle cat passed away from old age after becoming very fr.ail on the 3rd of July, 2020.
Michele, from Exeter, said the moggy sa.dly di.ed before turning 32.
He would have been 32 in May, so it was such an achievement. He was an amazing companion that I had the pleasure to live with for such a long time.
Rubble managed to beat the oldest living cat record, previously held by a Siamese Texas named Scooter, who was 30-years-old before he pa.s.sed aw.ay in 2016.
The oldest known cat of all time is Creme Puff, who lived until 38-years-old and 3 days.
Michele said: “I was lonely living on my own, so got him in as a kitten. It was in May 1988.”
He must have been so well taken care of to live for so long! What a great life he must have had. Maine Coons are extraordinary cats! And he was a beauty! 🌹🌹🌹🌺🌺🌺💝
What an amazing age !! Sleep tight little one ❤️
RIP Rubble and fly free sweet angel…!😢😢❤
