Is Abandoned Cat Britain’s Oldest Feline Friend?


I’m not sure I’d call a cat old. They seem to have the same kind of personality as an otherwise delightful woman until you call her old and she unleashes her inner beast. I mean, I’m a woman and even I know how that works. However, it turns out that we’re going to call a cat old and hope we get away with it unscathed. Banjo is the cat’s name. This sweet cat was found without a home or without a family and brought to a local RSPCA in Southall Cattery. The cat was obviously an old one, but the people at the shelter were not sure just how elderly this cat really is until they brought him to the vet and had him checked out.

They knew he was old, but they had no idea that Banjo was so old. It’s been determined that this abandoned cat is at least 27-years-old. That makes him only six years younger than me, which is pretty impressive for a feline. One of the things that leads them to believe they know how old he is approximately is the fact that he does have a microchip. He was given the chip in 1991, and some of his previous health information is listed as a result of that microchip. Now that he is thought to be 27, that makes him the oldest cat alive in Britain. What they need for this sweet cat is a home. He needs a place to live out the remainder of his days, which are very likely numbered. Please contact the shelter if you are interested.
