Oldest Living Domestic Cat 2021

While not officially recognized by Guinness World records, it is believed that a 34 year old Siamese cat in Chanthaburi, Thailand is the oldest living cat in the world.  The cat is known as “Great Grandmother Wad,” and is still very strong, but has trouble walking and her memory isn’t the best, her owner says.

While unverified, the cat’s age would make “Grandma Wad” (as the Siamese tabby is now called) one of only six felines to have lived more than 33 years, according to Wikipedia.  The light-brown Srisawad weighs about two kilograms (4.4 pounds) and is 160 years old in “cat years”.
