The Daily Treat: 29-Year-Old Cat Could Be World's Oldest
Missan the cat’s owner says she adopted the feline in 1985
Tiffany Two, there may be a cat older than you.
A 29-year-old feline from Karlskoga, Sweden, is vying for the title of the world’s oldest living cat, which would bump 26-year-old Tiffany Two from her feline throne.
According to FOX 8 news, Asa Wickberg, the owner of a 29-year-old cat named Missan, says she adopted her feline in 1985. Recently, Wickberg spotted an article about Tiffany Two being named the world’s Oldest Living Cat by Guinness World Records and realized that her kitty was older (wiser? That is still unclear).
A representative for Guinness tells PEOPLE that they have received an application for Missan (pictured in the Tweet below) but are still awaiting evidence in order to verify.
Wickberg told Sweden’s The Local that she is confident the cat – who suffers from minor health problems – will live to see age 30 in the spring.
“It feels highly likely,” she said. After all, 30 is the new 20, right?
