Owner Vicki Green, who adopted her after the elderly animal was given to a British cat, said owner Vicki Greene, the charity Cat Protection Society in August.

“She’s so affectionate and playful, especially when you remember her age. I am so proud that Protect Feline matched me up with such a wonderful cat.”

Flossie has lived in several homes since a stray cat lived near Merseyside Hospital in Liverpool, northwest England, for the first few months of her life in 1995.

She was adopted by a hospital worker, and lived with her for 10 years before her owner died. My Flossie was taken over by her late owner’s sister. After 14 years, its second owner passed away. She then stayed with her second owner’s son for three years before being entrusted to the Cat Protection Volunteers.

That’s when news of his amazing age began to spread and the journey to confirm his registration began.
