A 34-year-old pet Siamese in Thailand could be the next record holder of the oldest living cat in the world. The kitty named Grandma Wad was adopted by locals after a stray cat had given birth to her in 1987.
The Guinness World Records holder for the oldest cat that lived was Creme Puff from Austin, Texas, which passed away at 38-years-old. Grandma Wad, who is still alive and well, could take the record after confirmation.
Pet owner Wanna K., said the cat has never shown any signs of serious physical illness although she can only eat soft food now due to her weakened teeth. She said: ‘Her back legs were bitten by dogs twice a few years ago. She had injuries on her bones which were still noticeable.
However, she has remained healthy all of these years. ‘We noticed that Grandma Wad has become a little bit more forgetful now that she’s old and her teeth can no longer eat dry food but she doesn’t show any sign of illness.’
Wanna claimed her family adopted Grandma Wad 34 years ago when she was still a kitten after a stray cat gave birth in front of their house.
She added that Grandma Wad’s siblings have already passed away and she has even outlived all of her own kittens. The moggy has continued to age through the years with a healthy body.
Wanna said: ‘She was energetic when she was young and always ran around my fruit farm trying to catch small animals. She’s kind and playful but she can get really aggressive if someone tries to mess with her.’
To keep the animal healthy, Wanna makes sure that they regularly visit the vet for check-ups so she can keep her beloved feline healthy for as long as possible.
34 ‘cat years’ would be 160 years old in human years and that’s why she is very spoiled and receives all the care a senior cat needs.

She weighs just two kilos and eats only soft foods. Her owner said: ‘Grandma Wad has been with me since I was young and I hope to spend more time with her, so I make sure that she stays healthy by feeding her high-quality food.’
