A feline named Poppy has died at the respectable age of 24 — just a few weeks after clinching the title of world’s oldest cat.
Poppy, who was born in February 1990, died Friday following a complication from a water infection.
“We knew she was old but it’s still very upsetting,” the cat’s owner, Jacqui West, told the Daily Mail. “She had a bad week last week. She was on antibiotics on the Wednesday because of a water infection and her back legs just seemed to let her down. She wasn’t herself at all.”
Poppy leaves behind four humans, four cats, two rabbits and a hamster.
