30-Year-Old Siamese Cat Named World’s Oldest by Guinness

World's Oldest Cat | Tampa Bay Animal Hospitals | Tampa, FL

At 30 years old, Scooter, a Siamese feline, has been declared the new world’s oldest living cat by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Born on March 26, 1986, Scooter lives with his owner Gail Floyd in Mansfield, Texas.

Gail was there the day Scooter was born and he’s remained by her side since he was a kitten playing in her hair and riding on her shoulder, according to a press release from Guinness World Records. These days, Scooter wakes Gail up every morning at 6 a.m. and waits by the door when she arrives home from work.
