A CAT thought to be the world’s oldest has died at the grand old age of 31 — 150 in human years.
Michele Heritage got Maine Coon kitten Rubble on her 20th birthday.
Now 52, she said: “He was an amazing companion that I had the pleasure to live with for such a long time.
“He grew old quickly by the end.
“I have always treated him like a child.
“I went to work as usual and when I got home my husband said Rubble had gone off to die as cats do.
“He had his favourite places to sleep and liked his food so when he stopped eating we knew.”

Michele, of Exeter, put his long life down to her pampering him like a child, given she had no kids of her own.
She said: “If you care about something, no matter what it is, it does last.”
The oldest recorded cat was Creme Puff who lived 38 years, three days from 1967 to 2005 in Texas, US.
