An orange and white cat living in the U.K. named Rubble recently turned 30 years old. Michele Foster says she got Rubble as a gift on her birthday back in 1988.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin with a happy birthday wish to the world's oldest cat. An orange-and-white kitty living in the U.K. named Rubble recently turned 30 years old. Michele Foster says she got Rubble as a gift on her birthday back in 1988. The Guinness Book of World Records says the oldest cat was a Siamese named Scooter, who died at the age of 30. Foster says she doesn't think she'll try to register Rubble with the Guinness folks. Rubble's a kind of private guy who just wants to live out his old age in peace. It's MORNING EDITION.
