Ann and Bob Higginbottom (yep, that's their real name) of Lincolnshire, England rescued a kitten named Pinky from a shelter back in 1986 - that's 28 years ago and Pinky is still alive! 

She just turned 28 which is about 129 in human years.  And that makes her the world's oldest living cat.

Ann says, "She is amazing, really, completely deaf now . . . but her eyesight is still as sharp as ever.  She's turning into an old lady now, she likes to sit by our Koi pond and just watch them as they swim."

According to the "Guinness Book of World Records", the oldest cat ever lived to be 38 so Pinky would need to go another decade to match that.
