Waddy, a former pub cat, has become famous after news spread that he had just celebrated his 27th birthday.
Waddy’s owner, Ann Munday, recalls how she aquired a ‘very poorly’ cat from a vet in 1986. It is believed Waddy was the runt of the litter, however with the care and attention of Ms Munday and her vet, they nursed Waddy back to full health, and since then he has gone from strength to strength.
Mrs Munday said her cat, known as Waddy, “is not as active as he was”.
And Guinness World Records have also invited his owner Ann Munday to apply for Waddy to be crowned the oldest cat in the world, as their current world record holder is only 24.
Ann, who lives in Wentworth Drive, Bedford said: “It was a bit overwhelming really because we didn’t realise that Waddy could actually be the oldest cat.
Mrs Munday said he is “a bit of a fussy eater” but will eat cat food, although he is partial to a bit of fresh chicken or fish.
“If I get fish and chips I always get him a bit of fish – he doesn’t like the chips,” she said.
“He’s been very naughty this week. I cooked some bacon for my son’s breakfast and he was sitting there squealing away, so I cooked two more rashers for him.”
Mrs Munday said: “He’s like a little old man really, he gets up, goes out, comes in, has his food and then goes back to sleep.”
