Oregon cat, 26, could go down in record books as world's oldest

TURNER, Ore. (KPTV) – A local cat might soon be in the Guinness
Book of World Records as the world’s oldest living cat.

FOX 12 talked to the owner of Samm, Charly Briggs who lives in
Turner. She said he is 26 years old, and her friends suggested she
check with Guinness to see if that age is significant. It turns out, it
is.

Briggs said she is in the process of submitting the proper evidence
to Guinness World Records to have Samm officially recognized.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) — A Portland woman is celebrating a
special day. Next week, Dr. Edythe Leupp (above) will turn 100
years old.

She’s lived in the Rose City for nearly 50 years. She was the
principal at Duniway Elementary School before moving to
Geroge Fox University in Newberg.

Leupp says turning 100 is bitter-sweet. Her husband passed
away 30 years ago. Despite her loss, it brings her great joy to
see her family grow.
