At the beginning of September 2017, the cat Natmeg passed away at the incredible age of 32 for his relatives. In terms of human age, he would have been 144 years old. However, it is worth noting that the comparison of the age of animals and people is always quite conditional.
The owners of the cat Liz and Ian Finlay (Liz and Ian Finlay) from Blaydon-on-Tyne adopted Natmeg after they discovered him in 1990 in their garden. Then the couple took the cat to the veterinarian, who determined from the condition of the teeth that the animal was at least five years old. It also turned out that the unfortunate animal suffered from severe abscesses on the neck, but the couple literally came out of it. Since then, the owners have never parted with the animal.
After Natmeg turned 30 years old, he often found himself in the center of media attention and fell in love with Internet users.
Many saw in the cat's eyes a unique combination of fatigue, irritation and wisdom, indicating that over the years the animal has managed to understand a lot in life.
Serious health problems with the old man-cat began back in 2013, when he had a heart attack. In August, the old animal suffered a respiratory tract disease, and also suffered from heart failure, so the owners decided to put the old cat to sleep. Liz and Ian Finlay admitted that they were heartbroken, as they loved the fluffy pet very much.
The secret of his long life, according to the couple, was that he was not their pet. "We were his pets, and he never let us forget about it," the owners say.
By the way, the oldest cat in history is considered to be a black-and-white Cream Puff from Texas: she died in August 2005 at the age of 38, which roughly corresponds to the human age of 170 years. At the same time, on average, domestic cats live about 15 years.
