Flossie the cat has been verified as the oldest living cat by Guinness World Records at almost 27 years old. Flossie was adopted by Vicki Green from a cat protection agency when she was 26 years and 316 days old. Flossie has had a long life and has known several homes throughout the years. Vicki Green, who is a mother to four previous senior cats, provides Flossie with delicious food and cozy napping spots. Senior cats like Flossie often stay in shelters for long periods of time as people tend to prefer younger cats. Adopting a senior cat can be a rich and rewarding experience, as Flossie proves. Congratulations to Flossie on this remarkable achievement.
