World's Oldest Cat Is A Party Animal, Eats KFC

Posted: Updated:

Who needs health when you've got nine lives?

The world's oldest living cat has a taste for KFC and kebabs. Poppy, now blind and deaf and feisty as ever, is pretty much the coolest cat to grace the Internet since yesterday. Guinness World Records crowned her the oldest living cat at the young age of 24 -- or 114 in human years, according to SWNS.

She was born in February, 1990. Her family isn't sure exactly how she was able to hold on for so long, but one of her secrets is eating KFC chicken, kebabs, fish and chips and canned cat food, NBC News reports.

Just look at that birthday cake!

"Poppy is definitely the top cat and she is still quite feisty," said Jacqui West, Poppy's owner, at her home in Bournemouth, England. "If one of the other cats tries to eat her food she will bite them on the ear."

Poppy has a long way to go if she wants to be dubbed the OLDEST CAT OF ALL TIME, however. Creme Puff, who lived in Austin, Texas, made it to 38 years and 3 days, and died in 2005. The average cat lives about 15 years, NBC News reports.

Party on, Poppy.
