Meet The World’s Oldest Cat: Nutmeg The Grumpy Tabby Who Is Going Strong At 31-Years-Old


This tabby kitty just celebrated his 31st birthday, which makes him 141 in human years. The cat’s name is Nutmeg, and his owners took him in back in 1990. Last year Nutmeg suffered a stroke, but now he’s stronger and better than ever.

The average lifespan of a cat is about 15 years. However Nutmeg’s owners Liz and Ian Finlay say the secret to their cat’s long life is being spoilt rotten. The couple, from Blaydon, Tyne and Wear, confess to regularly feeding him treats including tuna, cream and hot roast chicken.


“We are very proud Nutmeg is the oldest cat in the world, but to us he is just our pet,” said Ian to Express.
