The ginger cat is celebrating his 31st birthday (equivalent to 141 years in human years). Nutmeg selected his parents 26 years ago when he showed up in their garden and asked to be fed.
Nutmeg’s owners said that he “rules the home and is incredibly stunning.”
Liz and Ian Finlay were the ones who took the kitten in when it was a stray back in 1990. Nutmeg’s abscess on his neck was treated by Cats Protection, who informed the owners that the cat had to be at least five years old in order to be treated.
Despite the fact that Nutmeg is the world’s oldest cat, his guardians must submit documentation proving his age in order to qualify for the Guinness Book of World Records—which isn’t simple, but they are actively working on it.
The beloved Nutmeg had a stroke last year but is back in good health, leaving everyone around him wondering how much longer he has left.
The fact that he never allows us to forget that we are his people may well be the secret to his wonderful and healthy existence.
It was last year when Nutmeg celebrated his 31st birthday (which is equivalent to 141 years in human years), which made him the unofficially recognized oldest feline in the world.
He is very stunning and fully controls the household.
It was found wandering the streets and taken in by the Finlays in 1990.
Finlay took the kitten as a feral cat in 1990, and they became friends with their cat, Spice, whom they named after.
The Finlays, on the other hand, need to show proof of their size in order to be considered for the Guinness World Record.
Nutmeg is a senior cat, but the Finlays still like him even though he is very old.
Every morning, Nutmeg arrives at the house at 5 a.m. to be fed. He’s been pampered.
After suffering a stroke only last year, Nutmeg has recovered and is once again up and running…
