World's oldest cat is 26 – and is same age as England ace Jack Grealish | The Sun

THE world’s oldest cat is 26 — born in the same year as England footie star Jack Grealish.

Mature moggie Flossie has now been recognised by Guinness World Records weeks before her 27th birthday.

The pet puss, who is deaf and going blind, has the equivalent human age of around 120.

She is thought to have been born on December 29, 1995 — just three months after Man City midfielder Grealish, who scored in England’s 6-2 win against Iran this week.

Flossie was found stray as a newborn near a Merseyside hospital.

She spent most of her life with one family until earlier this year when she went to the Cat’s Protection charity.

She’s now been rehomed with Vicki Green, also 27, in Orpington, South East London.

Executive assistant Vicki said: “She’s so affectionate, playful and sweet, especially when you remember how old she is.

“She’s deaf and has failing eyesight but none of that seems to bother her.” 

Vicki added: “She’s completely with it, loves affection and has a very good appetite.

“She never turns her nose up at the chance of a good meal, except when she’s snuggled on her favourite yellow blanket.”
