Poppy the cat is certainly feline her age – after being recognized as the world’s oldest cat at 24 years.  The tortoiseshell puss from Bournemouth was born in February 1990, making her a ripe old 114 in human years.  She has lived through five British Prime Ministers but is now a frail old lady and spends most of her time indoors relaxing. Poppy, who has been recognized by Guinness World Records, is one year younger than Misao Okawa of Japan, the oldest person in the world.
