This Feisty Feline Has Just Been Named The Worlds Oldest Cat!
Scooter isn’t just a cat. He has been officially dubbed the worlds oldest cat! At a spry 30 years old, Scooter was recognized by Guinness World Records, surpassing the previous title holder Corduroy who lived to 26.
This guy might be old, but he is still the light of his families life, and lives his life to the fullest. Take a look at this record breaking cat!
It is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are “ear tipped” so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.

Senior cats face the most difficulty finding homes, and shelters are often overloaded with them. Hopefully Scooter’s newfound fame will help spread the word about how amazing senior cats can be.
Hopefully we will see more of this amazing old man!
