(Fox News) – A nearly 27-year-old cat from England has been
named the world’s
oldest living cat
by Guinness World Records

.

Flossie, the record-breaking feline, received verification from
the world record reference guide, on Nov. 10, according to a
press release. 

Guinness World Records says Flossie was born on Dec. 29, 1995,
and she received her verification at the "nyan-tastic age of 26
years 316 days."

The world record guide claims Flossie’s age is "equivalent" to
about "120 human years."

Owner Vicki Green stated,“I knew from the start that Flossie was
a special cat, but I didn’t imagine I’d share my home with a world
record holder.”
