Nutmeg the cat, the 31-year old cat

Hold your breath; this is Nutmeg the cat, a 31-year old cat, probably the oldest living cat in the world. Cats are not known to have a longer lifespan. They tend to live for not more than 20 years, especially if they are indoor cats.

Stray cats and cats that venture out don’t live longer, but it is very surprising to know that a tabby cat can live for 31 years and counting. Nutmeg celebrated his 31st birthday very recently, which is equivalent to 141 in human years.

  1. My cat Rowdy, a B&W Turkish Angora, passed when he was over 22 years on 11-23-14. I got him at 7 weeks, very tiny and precious, and allowed him to be an indoor-outdoor cat as he chose. We installed a cat door to our large back yard, but he liked to climb the fence and stayed fairly close to home around our cul-de-sac. He rode in a car with me when he was young, he loved hide-n-seek, he was very spoiled and he was 15 before he allowed me to rub his belly- then there was no end to demanding belly rubs. He never had a sick day in his life, which I found amazing. I gave him his vaccinations once every 5-6 years. He did get confused sometimes after he reached 20, maybe a bit of dimentia, but he remained agile up until a day or so before he passed. His body was simply well used and ready to rest. Wonderful cat, amazingly beautiful, two color eyes and a tail that was extraordinary. I will always miss my special friend.
