Happy birthday…world's oldest cat

The world's oldest cat has celebrated its 27th birthday.

Waddy has defied the odds to reach the incredible milestone – which is 125 in human years – and his owner Ann Munday admits it is a "miracle" the feline even survived the first four weeks of his life, which is when she adopted him after he was thrown out by his owners.

She told the Metro newspaper: "I’ve always had cats, but he is an absolute dream and he has been a fantastic companion since my husband died 13 years ago.

"He was a tiny and very poorly little thing so it’s a miracle he has survived."
