There's a cat in central Sweden rumoured to be the oldest in the world, and its upcoming birthday would make it two years older than the current Guinness World Record holder.
Egypt may boast the Great Sphinx of Giza, but Sweden can now lay claim to Prince Columbus, a 25-year-old housecat.
The cat, which lives with its owners in central Sweden, is in good health and set to turn 26 in November. That's the equivalent of 121 in human years.
The Guinness Book of World Record says the oldest living cat in the world is 24-year-old Poppy, but ever since poor Poppy passed, Gustavsson has questioned whether her pet could take the title.
She says she is certain of the cat's age by a diary entry she penned on November 11th, 1988.
Prince Columbus weighs eight kilogrammes and has only been to the vet once to be castrated - over 20 years ago.
