Scooter the cat, who was recently named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest living has died.
The Siamese cat celebrated his 30th birthday on March 26.
Scooter’s owner, Gail Floyd, who lives in Mansfield, Texas, has said he had died by the time Guinness confirmed his title on April 8.
Local vet Dr. Tricia Latimer says Scooter had lived to the equivalent of about 136 human years.
The owner said Scooter had lived so long because he stays active and keeps busy by travelling.
Apparently Scooter had visited 45 of the 50 states in America.
Some of Scooter’s favorite activities were said to include getting blow-dried after baths and snacking on chicken every other day.
Gail Floyd adds that as a kitten, Scooter liked to play in her hair and even got used to riding on her shoulder, going with her wherever she went.
The cat used to wake her up every morning at 6am, “talking” and jumping around, and was always waiting by the door when she arrived home from work.
Scooter wasn’t Guinness World Records’ oldest cat of all time though.
That oldest cat of all time honor belongs to a fellow Texan cat, which lived to be 38.
