A British cat has been hailed as the oldest in the world - after celebrating its 30th birthday.

The ageing feline- named Rubble - has been with owner Michele Foster since she got him as a kitten on her 20th birthday May 1988. The pair have been inseparable ever since and Rubble has now matched the age of the last world record holder.

Rubble celebrated its milestone with a party at his local vets where he was treated to some of his favorite cat food and a free check-up. And his incredible longevity is put down to the fact that Michele never had her own children and pampers him like her child.

Michele, 50, said that despite possibly now owning the world's oldest cat she had never wanted to go down the record route as she didn't want Rubble turning into a celebrity. But she said she was still extremely proud of her cat's achievements.

She said: "He's a lovely cat, although he has got a little grumpy in his old age. I got him just before my 20th birthday when he was a kitten. Rubble suffers from high blood pressure so he needs regular medication and City Vets have been a huge help in keeping him healthy."

The previous oldest living in the Britain - Nutmeg from Tyne and Wear - died last September. Rubble is now the same age as Scooter, a Siamese Texas, named as a record breaker at the age of 30 by the Guinness Book of World - but later died.

The oldest cat ever according to the record books is Creme Puff who was born on August 3, 1967, and lived until August 6, 2005 – an amazing 38 years and three days.
