A tabby cat who might be the world’s oldest cat has just celebrated his 31st birthday.
His name is Nutmeg and he’s been with his current owners since 1990 – when he turned up in their back garden as a stray.
26 years ago, Liz and Ian Finlay’s found the cat hanging around because he befriended the Finlay’s cat Spice. Ian and Liz instantly adored Nutmeg and took him to their local Cats Protection to have an abscess on his neck treated. At the time, the vet said Nutmeg was at least 5-years-old.
