World's Oldest Feline?

A cat in the United Kingdom (UK) celebrated a birthday the first week of December, and his caregivers believe he might be the world's oldest. Mischief, adopted as a kitten in 1981, is described as a 27-year old cat with a spring in his step. The previous "oldest cat" in the Guinness Book of World Records was Spike, who passed on in 2001 at 21 years. Creme Puff, the oldest cat ever, was born August 1967 and died August 2005 in Austin, Texas. The UK seems like a hotbed for elderly kitties, as evidenced here, when a UK couple claimed their cat was the country's oldest. There is no current record holder.
