MANSFIELD, TEXAS – Gaze into the eyes of Scooter, who is now officially the new World’s Oldest Living Cat.
Scooter and his wise old eyes have been around for exactly 30 years, and his age has now been recognized by Guinness World Records.
Gail Floyd — who generously houses Scooter even though he is a grown adult and should probably get his own pad — says her companion has always been a lively people cat.
When he was just a kitten, he would play in Gail’s hair and ride atop her shoulder. Now in his golden years, Scooter still rises at 6 am every morning.
If he could talk, the Siamese who hails in Mansfield, Texas would probably credit his geriatric vigor to years of travel and indulgence.
Scooter has visited 45 states and enjoys regular servings of chicken, his favorite protein-packed treat.
A cat also doesn’t live this long without being completely spoiled. Scooter fits in his “me-time” with the occasional bath and a blow-dry. After all, he’s earned it.
As a Thirtysomething, Scooter has survived a total of five presidencies, all nine seasons of Seinfeld, and is more than likely almost halfway through repaying his student debts.
Scooter’s achievement eclipses the previous World’s Oldest Cat titleholder Corduroy, who is only in his late twenties now and has yet to learn about life.
