Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin – they all passed away at age 27. Tiffany is bound to outlive them.
Though she’s a cat, not a singer, Tiffany is a superstar in her own right: Guinness World Records named the 26-year-old black-and-orange tortoiseshell feline the world’s Oldest Living Cat on Feb. 6 – and on March 13 she’s turning the ripe old age of 27.
Born in 1988 in San Diego, California, Tiffany was bought by her owner Sharon Voorhees from a local pet shop at just 6 weeks old, according to press materials distributed by Guinness. The cat’s full name is Tiffany Two, a nod to another tortoiseshell cat Voorhees owned earlier.
She may be approaching 27, but Tiffany is still a kitten at heart. She has good sight and hearing, and only occasionally deals with minor health issues like high blood pressure.
“She’s not afraid of anything or anyone. She walks right past the dogs, she’s very feisty,” Voorhees told Guinness World Records.
When the cat celebrates her birthday like a rock star next month, she’ll be wishing for at least another 11 happy years of life: The oldest cat ever reported, Creme Puff, lived an unbelievable 38 years and 3 days.
