Guinness World Records has named a 30-year-old male Siamese cat called Scooter the oldest living cat in the world. Scooter was born on March 26, 1986, and still lives with the same owner in Texas. Scooter’s veterinarians say the cat has a "strong will to live," and his owner says she has worked to keep him active, to which she credits his longevity.
But did you know that the average pet koi can live to well beyond 30 years? They can achieve greater than 50 years! I’ve clients with pet koi that’ve been passed down a generation, that are now the only living memory of their parent/s that had passed on. I’ve treated populations of fish where some were as old as me!
And, “How old am I,” you might ask? I’ll let you take a guess 🙂
