Rest in piece Rubble who was a Maine Coon Cat owned by Michele Heritage who lives in Devon, UK.

After Rubbles’ 31st birthday last May, he became the oldest living cat in the world at 150 equivalent human years. Heritage got him as a kitten just before her 20th birthday and said, “He was an amazing companion that I had the pleasure to live with for such a long time.” Heritage says that his longevity was due to much pampering since she has no children.

Rubble in the end stopped eating and only drank water. Heritage’s husband reported that Rubble had gone across the road and had never come back. They believe he went off to die as cats sometimes do.

According to the Guinness Book of Records, Crème Puff who was born on August 3, 1967 in Texas, and died on August 6, 2005 at 38 years old still holds the record for longest lived cat in history.

    So did you find Rubbles remains? Somewhat sad that you allowed him outside when he stopped eating. So wish he could have passed with you instead of alone. RIP Rubble♥

    Cats often disappear when it is their time to go, it is not their thing to die in your company. Cats like to do their own thing, they only put up with us humans. RIP Rubble
