According to Guinness World Records, the current oldest (verified) living cat is 23-year-old Pinky from Kansas.
My dear cat, Friday, passed away this week at 20 years of age. She was a gorgeous Maine **** born on a farm. My son gave her to me when he left for college and our dog passed away, leaving me alone (my husband traveled for work). The picture above is of Itty Bit---she is 6 years old and was blown out of a hay truck when our neighbor's lawn was installed. She's a pistol, but we love her!This is my first on-line comment.
I think this is really neat. A few years ago we had a cat called Moses who we 'inherited' from a neighbor. Moses was an indoor/outdoor cat who had been hit by a car and as a result had to have one of his rear legs amputated. When he was well enough to go out again his original owner, the neighbor, said Moses never forgave him for taking him to the vet for the amputation. So Moses, who had been just a visitor on occasion to our house, decided he was moving in with us. Moses made his home with us for 13 years and before that he had belonged to the neighbor for 10 years - ever since he was a small kitten. He is the only cat I ever had that lived to be 23 years old.
My all black, golden eyed cat Shir Khan lived to the age of 27. She was my Halloween cat and she is very much missed.
Glad to hear of your cat's 25th birthday . . .At present I have four cats ranging from 2 years to my little old lady who will be 27 in October of this year. Her vision isn't so keen these days but she's still active and lives on my bed!
I didnt realize that 25 was such a big deal. I had a cat that lived to 25, oh boy,,if she could of talked, she had quite a life with me
My cat Polly is turning 22. I believe the secret is a daily dose of L-Lysin. As well as three jars of pure meat baby food . Of course she also gets a lot of TLC. FYI. Viralyis( L-Lysin) also seems to keep flees at bay and leaves her coat so very soft. Try it, you'll be happy you did.
My cat Polly is 21 and the secret I believe is a daily dose of L-Lycine. I also give her three jars of pure meat baby food a day.

my cat cloudy is almost 23 years old and chased a Lab out of our yard last year.
