Cola, a beautiful black cat, is perhaps the oldest cat in Britain. She was born in 1985 when Back to the Future was topping the box office.
She will turn 28 this year. That’s is 140 in cat years.
Cola has lived with Mary Goldsmith, 66, since she was a kitten. “I don’t throw big birthday parties for her, because every day she is around is a celebration,” Mary said via Daily Mail.
“We have had children who have grown up to have their own families and Cola has lived through all that and is still around. It’s quite a milestone. The years have absolutely flown by.”
When it comes to the secret to Cola’s long life, Mary attributes it to love and spoiling. “I’ve got children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who come over to play with her and keep her busy.”
“She is still reasonably fit for her age and can still jump onto a chair – but she doesn’t have quite the same spring in her step,” Mary added. ”She has lived to such a grand age. Perhaps she really does have nine lives? She is a lucky black cat, that’s for sure.”
