Happy 27th Birthday to Tiffany!

World's oldest cat turns 27 (according to the Guinness World Records).






And she lives in San Diego!! A tiny little 6 pound cat.

Quote:
And fun fact: Tiffany is a "feisty" cat with a lot of "sex appeal," her owner said.

"She's had many boyfriends over the years," Voorhees said. "One young male cat used to always run and want to see her even when she was already 13 or 14. I also used to have a big 20-pound black-and-white cat who she'd cuddle and spoon with."

Voorhees used to have a Tiffany "One" in the '70s, who died early from cancer, she said. She saw Tiffany Two when she passed a local pet shop in 1988 that was going out of business that day, she said.

"I saw the little kitty who looked just like my old Tiffany, and though I went home, I just kept thinking about it," Voorhees said. "They were both short-haired and black-and-orange tortoiseshell colored."
Quote:
Voorhees went back a few minutes before the pet shop closed for good, she said, and adopted Tiffany, who was six weeks old at the time.

"I paid $10, and I always say that was the best investment I ever made," Voorhees said. "We're inseparable. She gets very emotional when I pet her. She drools."
Shortly after, Voorhees got two dogs, whom Tiffany got along well with, she said.

"They'd run around the house together, and she'd help him escape the play pen I kept him in whenever I had to leave the house," Voorhees said.

"They've been long gone, but I still have two other dogs and two cats who are family to Tiffany."
Quote:
Despite Tiffany's old age, she's still a healthy cat, Voorhees said.

"She's not feeble, she can go up and down the stairs and goes outside when she pleases," Voorhees said.

WOW! Happy Birthday Tiffany! That is sooo AWESOME!

Wow. She's an adorable little thing! What's 27 equivalent to in human years? Over 100? I'm less than half her age and have a hard time going up and down the stairs.

I wonder what would have happened to Tiffany if this woman hadn't adopted her, with the pet shop going out of business that day.

Wow, she looks great! Happy birthday, Tiffany! I hope I look that good when I get to be her age converted to human years (100+?).

That's an amazing story. I can't imagine how lucky that lady must feel to have such a long-lived cat!

That is absolutely AMAZING! She looks as young, if not younger than my family cat Cuddles who is 17. I could only dream that my kitties could live as long as Tiffany! Happy birthday!
