A cat which was the "runt of the litter" when adopted as a kitten, has just turned 27 years old according to BBC News.
Ann Munday of Bedford, UK, adopted her cat Wadsworth as a kitten, he was the runt of his litter and suffered from several health problems. With the help of a local vet she was able to get the kitten healthy but she probably didn't expect him to live an extra-long life after his tough start to life!
The vet who still treats the cat, has verified his age.
Wadsworth prefers a quieter life these days and "doesn't really play any more".
Mrs Munday told the BBC: "He's like a little old man really, he gets up, goes out, comes in, has his food and then goes back to sleep."
The world record for the oldest cat ever, was set by Creme Puff who lived with her owner in Texas, USA, until her death in 2005 at the age of 38.
