At 24, Poppy the moggy has become a Guinness world record holder after being recognised as the world's oldest cat.
The Bournemouth feline was born in February 1990, the same month Nelson Mandela was released from prison.
She has lived through five British Prime Ministers, the creation of the internet and also witnessed the millennium in her time.
After becoming blind and deaf in her twilight years, she now spends most of her day inside relaxing.
After Poppy reached the equivalent of 114 in human years, owner Jacqui West wrote to Guinness World Records to claim the 'oldest living cat’ title.
Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, said:
Speaking to Guinness World Records, her owner Jacqui West said Poppy's longevity is down to exercise and even a taste for KFC chicken:
Previous to Poppy, the oldest recorded cat in history was a feline called Creme Puff who was born on 3 August 1967 and lived until 6 August 2005 - which was an incredible 38 years and three days.
