There are quite a few stories of cats growing really old.
Reports like a Tabby cat named Ma that became 34 years old.
Creme Puff (1967 –2005) was a female cat who died at age 38 years.
She was the oldest cat according to the 2010 edition of Guinness World Records.
The cat owner was Jack Perry from Texas.
Neutered cats live on average three years longer than unneutered cats.
This may be because neutered cats do not get into as many fights and are not equally exposed to infections.
