World's Oldest Living Cat Turns 32

We are so happy to wish Rubble, the world's oldest living cat, another happy birthday because he just turned 32! 

Rubble hit the 30 milestone two-years-ago in May 2018. According to his Wikipedia page, as of January 3rd, 2020, Rubble is still around and still holding the title for the world's oldest living cat. 

Due to his old age, Rubble does not need an extravagant celebration anymore, and he especially doesn't want to be surrounded by a lot of people. Too many people and too much noise would stress out any cat, let alone a senior cat. 

Instead, Rubble had his 30th birthday at the vet's office, where he enjoyed some Felix cat food and Whiskas Catmilk and was gifted a free check-up and one-months worth of medications. According to Dr. Shaun Moore, Rubble's veterinarian, Rubble is still in remarkably good health.

So how does Rubble's mother, Michelle Foster, plan on celebrating Rubble's 32nd birthday? The same as last year, in a non-stressful environment.

"He is old now and would not like too much attention or be hassled," Foster said. "We would prefer if he was just left to live out his old age in peace," Foster added.

We can definitely appreciate that! We wish you a peaceful and wonderful birthday, Rubble! Check out some pics of the handsome Rubble below!

Cheetah Breaks Record And Gives Birth To 8 Healthy Cubs

Bingwa, the 4-year old St. Louis Zoo cheetah, has more than just lived up to her name. "Bingwa" in Swahili means "champion" and what a more than fit name for the new mother of 8 cubs! What makes this so amazing is that, this is the first time a cheetah has given birth to eight adorable cubs at a zoo! Quite the accomplishment! (The average litter size is three to four cubs)

There's a record for that?!

Most cats pur at around 25 decibels, but Merlin purrs at a bizarre-sounding 100 decibels. That's louder than a lawnmower!
