The world’s oldest cat has finally used up the last of his nine lives – passing away at the incredible age of 32.

Nutmeg, the long-lived feline came down with breathing difficulties at the end of August, but vets were unable to save him after he suffered heart failure. He was put to sleep in early September.

Heartbroken owners Liz and Ian Finlay say the death of their beloved moggy has left a massive hole in their lives.

The couple adopted Nutmeg after finding him in their Tyneside garden in 1990.

They took him to Cats Protection, where vets told them he was at least five, making him 32 when he died.

Until his death, he was thought to be the oldest cat in the world, taking the crown of 26-year-old Corduroy, the Guinness World Record holder.

The Finlay’s tried in vain to find a record and took Nutmeg to the Cats Protection in 1990 to verify their claim.
