Just before her 27th birthday, a British cat has been officially recognized as the oldest living cat.  At the nyan-tastic age of 26 years 316 days, roughly the feline equivalent of 120 human years.

The record-breaking pet is in good health, although poorly sighted and deaf. Flossie, a beautiful brown and black kitty with a gentle disposition and who loves cuddles and food, has seen different homes throughout her long life.

Her current owner, Vicki, says that she is still playful and curious, unbothered by her deafness and quickly adapts to new environments despite her lack of sight. 

She understands Flossie’s needs and is prepared to help her with the little, day-by-day tasks that might prove difficult for a cat her age.
