Recently, a 26-year-old feline in South-East London has set a new Guinness World Record of being the world's oldest living cat.

Flossie was confirmed as the oldest cat by Guinness World Records, which said she had a human equivalent age of 120 years old.

The cat was rehabilitated by Cats Protection to her new owner Vicki Green who described Flossie as an amazing cat.

Guinness World Records said Flossie, who was born in 1995, had been living in a colony of cats near a Merseyside hospital when two workers took pity on them and each homed a cat.

Flossie lived with her first owner, a woman for 10 years until she died. She was taken in by her sister who kept her for 14 years until she passed away.

After that, for the next 3 years, Flossie lived with the sister's son, until he handed her to Cats Protection owing to a personal situation.

Now with Green, who has experience in caring for older cats, Flossie has found her new home.

Although, Flossie is deaf by now with failing eyesight but is still affectionate and playful.

Green is delighted to share the same space with a Guinness World Records title holder. She says that she knew from the very beginning that Flossie was a special cat. She says that Flossie is a very sweet cat. She is always playful and curious despite her disabilities.

Most cat owners prefer to adopt a much younger cat with elderly animals often living their final days in shelters. Green says, 'She always wanted to give older cats a comfortable later life.'

Flossie, a beautiful brown and black kitty with a gentle disposition who loves cuddles and food has seen different homes throughout her long life.

Responsible cat ownership is when someone thinks about an animal's needs above their feelings.

Flossie is now a very happy cat and Vicki Green is excited to begin this new chapter of their life together. This record-breaking cat lived with his owner, Jake Perry in Austin, Texas, USA.

Creme Puff, the oldest cat who ever lived surpasses Flossie's age by a decade.

The story will encourage potential cat owners to provide a haven for old cats. All these animals want is a comfy bed and a peaceful, loving home. They can offer so much affection but often find themselves ending their days in shelters.

We wish Flossie the best, and we look to seeing her next adventures.
