World’s oldest cat turns 125-years-old
Wadsworth, the world’s oldest cat has now reached the ripe old age of 125-human-years-old, that’s 27 in regular years.
The cat, known as Waddy (not the cat in the picture), was actually born as the runt of the litter and was even thrown out by his owners, but he has gone on to live a long and prosperous life.
The turning point for Waddy was when he was adopted by 66-year-old Ann Munday in Ravensden, Bedfordshire, when he was just four weeks old.
Ms Munday told the Metro: ‘I’ve always had cats, but he is an absolute dream and he has been a fantastic companion since my husband died 13 years ago.
‘He was a tiny and very poorly little thing so it’s a miracle he has survived.’
Waddy has been treated by the same vet ever since meaning he has records to prove his age.
‘He doesn’t have any back claws so he is a house cat, but can go for a run in the garden,’ Ms Munday added.
‘Now he is like a little old man and mainly sleeps and eats. He has some ailments but he still gets up on my bed and the table.’
