ritain’s oldest cat is finally getting the quiet retirement he deserves, after he was found dumped at a feline rehoming centre.

The owners of pension-aged puss Banjo may not have realised they had a potential record holder living with them when they abandoned him on a pet rescue centre’s doorstep on September 4th. Even workers at RSPCA Southall Cattery in west London had a shock when they discovered their new resident was first microchipped in 1991 at two years old - making him 27 - or 125 in human years. The mysterious moggy’s background is unknown - apart from the fact he’s travelled over 24 miles in his near three decades as his chip states he was first registered in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.
