The average life expectancy of an indoor cat is between 9 to 15 years. The world’s oldest cat is currently Tiffany.
Previous Guinness World Records listed the oldest living cat as Pinky, a cat living in Hoyt, Kansas and owned by Linda Anno. Pinky was born on October 31, 1989, but she passed away in 2013 at the age of 24. The title was then handed over to Poppy, from the UK. Poppy, a tortoiseshell, was born in February 1990, the same month Nelson Mandela was released from prison. She lived through five British Prime Ministers and was officially recognized by Guinness but died – just weeks after clinching the title.

Poppy celebrates her 24th birthday.
