Умер самый старый в мире кот по кличке Натмег. Ему было всего 32 года, и жил он в Великобритании. Хозяева рассказывают, что у животного случился сердечный приступ, а врачи помочь не смогли.
The world’s oldest cat, Nutmeg has died. It used up the last of his nine lives – passing away at the incredible age of 32. The couple, Liz and Ian Finlay adopted Nutmeg after finding him in their Tyneside garden in 1990. They said the death of Nutmeg has left a massive hole in the heart. Nutmeg the long-lived feline came down with breathing difficulties at the end of August, but vets were unable to save him after he suffered heart failure and he was put to sleep in early September. Until his death, Nutmeg was thought to be the oldest cat in the world, taking the crown of 26-year-old Corduroy, the Guinness World Record holder . The Finlay’s tried in vain to find a record and took Nutmeg to the Cats Protection in 1990 to verify their claim. Nutmeg kept outliving all of his nine lives and underwent lifesaving treatment at Westway’s main veterinary hospital on West Road, Newcastle, after suffering a stroke in 2015. The moggy marvel battled back to health, but had to be put to sleep following his latest illness, leaving his owners distraught. Liz said: “I feel like my heart has been ripped out. He is such a miss as he was a huge character, who was dearly loved.” #pets #cats #oldestcat #nutmeg #guinessbookofrecord #mypassionradio
