The world's oldest living cat in the US has reached the grand old age of 27 — the equivalent of 125 human years, Guinness World Records has said.

Born on March 13, 1988 in San Diego, California, Tiffany Two, was bought by her owner Sharon Voorhees from a local pet shop when the record breaking kitty was just six weeks old.

Despite her incredible age, the short-haired black and orange tortoiseshell has good sight and hearing, according to its owner.

Besides very small ailments such as high blood pressure from time to time, Sharon describes the cat as "not feeble and still able to go up and downstairs".

Tiffany Two has a sweet demeanour and loves to be petted, Sharon said.

The feline eats a varied diet with both wet food and dry food and resides indoors but also goes outdoors frequently.

Tiffany Two, however, has a long way to go in order to beat the oldest cat ever record, set by a feline from Texas called Creme Puff who lived an amazing 38 years and 3 days.
