Rubble, who lives with owner Michele Heritage, celebrated his birthday with a suprise party at City Vets animal hospital in Exeter, England.

"Happy 30th (yes, THIRTIETH!) birthday to Rubble," the clinic wrote on Facebook. "Rubble is CityVets oldest feline patient and likely to be the oldest cat in the UK! We surprised Rubble when he came in for a routine check with a balloon and his favourite food! Rubble is on medication for his blood pressure but apart from that, he is in remarkably good health."

Rubble was treated to some of his favorite cat treats and a free checkup to mark the day.

He's a lovely cat, although he has got a little grumpy in his old age," Heritage said.

According to the record books the oldest cat ever, Creme Puff, lived until the age of 38.

"He has plenty of live left in him yet, but I don't think we will go down the Guinness World Record route as I am not sure he would like lots of people coming to see him or a fuss being made out of him," Heritage said.
