Oregon Cat Might Be The World's Oldest At Age 26


  • Cat lovers could you imagine if your cat lived to be 26?!
  • An Oregon cat named Samm might soon be in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's oldest living cat.
  • Samm's owner, Charly Briggs said he is 26 years old, and her friends suggested she check with Guinness to see if that age is significant. It turns out, it is.
  • “I asked Guinness, and they were like, 'The oldest living cat we have on record right now is 24,’” Charly Briggs, Samm’s owner, said. “I'm like, 'What? He's older than 24.' I was like just freaking out. Then I was putting it to my friends on social media like, 'Guys, he could do it. He could win.' They're like, 'Go for it, go for it!' Yeah, we're going for it.”
  • Briggs said Samm was a stray when she adopted him in Memphis in 2002, but his veterinarian has confirmed he is 26 years old and in good health.
  • Briggs said she is in the process of submitting the proper evidence to Guinness World Records to have Samm officially recognized.
  • Guinness lists the oldest cat ever as Creme Puff, a Texas feline who lived to 38 years, 3 days.
  • What age did your cat live til?
