At 31 years old, Nutmeg might be the world’s oldest cat. ‘He only has three teeth left but he loves chicken so much he stands at the fridge door when he wants to be fed,’ says Ian, Nutmeg’s owner.

‘We have no children so he is our baby. Even if we go away, we have people come in and look after him. He had a lovely brown coat when we got him and now he is going grey, but he is doing well for his age.’

Nutmeg loves nothing more than hot roast chicken with gravy, or a Felix Meaty loaf. So if you want your cat to live a long time, perhaps Nutmeg’s diet is the secret to longevity, or at least the secret to making sure your cat eats better than you do.
