The oldest cat in the world is living in Orpington.
Cola the black cat turns 28 – 140 in cat years – in November, trumping 27-year-old Wadsworth, a cat from Bedfordshire who was previously thought to hold the crown.
Cola was born in Cottage Avenue, Bromley Common, in 1985, when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister and Back to the Future topped the box office.
She is owned by Mary Goldsmith... Mrs Goldsmith says Cola enjoys eating a range of foods including chicken, tuna, milk and cream, but her favorite food is haddock.
"I'll probably do something for her in November but really every day is a celebration, every day I still have her is like a birthday."
