Presenting Nutmeg, The World’s Oldest Cat Who Looks Purr-fect To This Day.
Liz and Ian, who don’t have any children see Nutmeg as their own child.
"He is spoilt rotten…He comes in every morning at five a.m. and we get up and feed him. We have no children so he is our baby," Liz admits. "Nutmeg is like a lovable old grandpa. He is very gentle, but he has changed as he has got older, just like humans do."

Nutmeg recovered from a serious stroke he had last year, proving cats may indeed have nine lives.
While treated at the Westway Veterinary Center in NewCastle, the vets suggested it may be time to put Nutmeg down. The couple decided that if Nutmeg was going to die, it would be at home. But it didn’t take too long for Nutmeg to recover from this life-threatening condition.
"We are very proud that Nutmeg is the oldest cat in the world. But to us, he is just our pet," the couple admits.
"He only has three teeth left but he loves chicken so much he stands at the fridge door when he wants to be fed," Ian says.
