Nutmeg, the oldest cat in the world, was alive for 32 years. But he chose this moment, right now in 2017, to say fuck it and pass over the rainbow bridge. And honestly, do you blame him?
People reports that Nutmeg first came to live with his family in the UK when his owners’ other cat, Spice, kept bring him to their house as a stray. He had a relatively chill, healthy life aside from a seizure he suffered in 2015. But he bounced right back from it, probably because he was stronger than you and I will ever be.
Unfortunately the old geezer passed away on August 29. And you’re thinking 32 years is way too long for a cat to be alive, you’d be right! The average cat’s lifespan is just 15 years, and People calculates he was 144 in feline years.
I leave you with a photo of Nutmeg on his 31st birthday, in which he looks unbelievably pissed. Goodbye sweet prince!!!
