The World’s Oldest Living Cat Has Died

The world’s oldest living cat, a feline named Tiffany Two, died last month at the age of 27 years, two months and nine days old.

In human terms, that’s about 125 years old, says Guinness World Records, which confirmed the cat’s death on Wednesday.

Tiffany Two’s owner, Sharon Voorhees, told ABC News on Thursday the orange and black tortoiseshell cat died peacefully in her sleep, atop a heated pad in her home in San Diego.

Voorhees bought the cat for $10 in 1988, and named her in honor of her first cat, Tiffany One, who was also a tortoiseshell.

“I paid $10, and I always say that was the best investment I ever made,” Voorhees told ABC in an earlier interview, when Tiffany Two turned 27. “We’re inseparable. She gets very emotional when I pet her. She drools.”

In the late 1990s, Tiffany Two burned through her proverbial “nine lives” when Voorhees moved into a new house. The cat got lost in an unfamiliar neighborhood and disappeared for more than two years. After the prolonged absence, she showed up again one day, meowing on Voorhees’ doorstep.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Voorhees recalled to the San Diego Union-Tribune on Friday. “We were immediately reunited and spent the next 14-plus years together. There is a deep attachment from an animal. Nobody can ever tell me that animals don’t have feelings. I know better!”

Though 27 years is a remarkable age, Tiffany Two was still quite a few years shy of the record for “oldest cat ever.” That honor goes to a cat by the name of Creme Puff, who died in August 2005 at the wise old age of 38 years and three days.

Guinness is currently searching for Tiffany Two’s successor for the title of “oldest cat living.” If you have a feline deserving of the record, you’re encouraged to apply at www.guinnessworldrecords.com.
