Is Wadsworth Considered the UK’s Oldest Cat?


According to Bedford Today, A feisty feline who enjoys fish and chips, was the runt of the litter and used to live in a pub could be the UK’s oldest cat. Wadsworth, who is also known as Waddy, turned 27 earlier this month. He was adopted by his owner Ann Munday in 1986 from a vet in De Parys Avenue, Bedford. The surgery was then taken over by Acorn House, in Brickhill where Wadsworth has been treated ever since, meaning he has records proving his age.

Ann said: “I’ve always had cats but he’s been really special, he has cost me the earth over the years though. I lost my husband 13 years ago and he was here for as someone to talk to.”  Wadsworth was named named after a beer, and lived at the Horse and Jockey public house before moving to The Blacksmith’s Arms, both in Ravensden, Bedfordshire. Ms. Munday was landlord at both pubs.

27 years old!  That’s pretty amazing.  We sincerely hope that Waddy can make it to 30 and from all of us at Kittentoob we wish Waddy a happy and healthy birthday.  That’s a lot of candles to blow out!  Thanks to Times and Citizen for the pic
