Rubble, a fluffy Maine Coon is hailed as one of the oldest felines in the world – when he celebrated his 30th birthday.
His owner, Michele Foster said that Rubble has been with her since 1988.
“It was just before my 20th birthday when I got him.”
Having spoken to Fox News, Michele described Rubble as “a lovely cat, although he has got a little grumpy in his old age.”
Rubble celebrated his 30th birthday enjoying a free check-up at Michele’s local vet’s office.
Equivalent to 137 in “human” years, Rubble is believed to be the oldest living cat in Europe.
The Guinness Book of World Records recorded Crème Puff, who was born on August 3, 1967 and lived until August 6, 2005 as the oldest cat ever recorded at 38-years and three days.
Michele says that despite Rubble’s unique achievement, she tried to keep him out of the spotlight.
“He has plenty of life left in him yet, but I don’t think we will go down the Guinness World Record route as I am not sure he would like lots of people coming to see him or a fuss being made out of him.”
“He is old now and would not like too much attention or be hassled. We would prefer if he was just left to live out his old age in peace.”
His vet, Shaun Moore said that the feline is still going strong.
“Rubble is quite likely to be the oldest cat in the UK and is still going strong.”
“He is on medication for his blood pressure but apart from that, he is in remarkably good health.”
Happy 30th Birthday Rubble!
