1991 — it’s the year Banjo the cat was microchipped.
According to The Press and Journal who reported the story, the elderly kitty, who is approximately age 27 (or 125 in human years), wound up at the RSPCA Southall Cattery in London on September 4 and his age was determined after the staff there scanned his microchip.
“Britain’s oldest cat” is what they have dubbed the kitty, who was dumped in a box outside the center, according to the worker in the video above. The feline was apparently 2 years old when the microchip was implanted.
“He’s anywhere between 25 and 27 years old,” says Michelle, the shelter staffer holding Banjo in the video. “I think the oldest cat before him [here] was about 13 or 14 years old.”
Thankfully, Banjo won’t be hanging around the U.K. shelter for much longer. Michelle says that the cat has found a home with a “nice family.”
