The world’s oldest cat named Rubble died at 31 years of age. It’s really hard for a cat hooman to lose her cat, even more so when the cat has been there with her for thirty one years. The stunning Maine Coon named Rubble was adopted by his hooman when she was twenty years old. Since then, the cat has never left her side.
Michele Heritage can’t stop talking about all the pawsomeness that Rubble filled her life with. Sadly, the furry companion left Michele’s side after his thirty first birthday. For humans, it might be thirty one years only. But when it comes to a cat’s age, it is almost one hundred and fifty years.
Rubble was a healthy cat and had no health issues at all. The old age was the only reason that the cat had to leave. He became very frail towards the end and died in July last year. His hooman shared that the cat was about to turn thirty two.
Rubble’s hooman Michele never had children, so she doted the cat just like her own child.
He would have been 32 in May, so it was such an achievement. He was an amazing companion that I had the pleasure to live with for such a long time. I got him just before my 20th birthday when he was a kitten.

We never went down the route of Guinness Book of Records. I didn’t want to do that given his age. The record wasn’t of interest to us. He grew old very quickly towards the end, I said to my husband at Christmas that I think it would be last we spend with Rubble. He had started to stop eating and only drank water.
Towards the end, Rubble became very frail and stopped eating properly. One day when Michelle returned home from work, her husband told her that Rubble has gone over the road like he usually does. Rubble’s hoomans believe that the cat knew his time was up.
