SAN DIEGO, Calif. (WKRN) – The world’s oldest cat celebrated a birthday Friday.

WLS-TV reported that Tiffany Two turned 27, which is 125-years-old in human years.

The cat, which lives in San Diego with her owner Sharon Voorhees, was born on March 13, 1988, making her the oldest cat in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Voorhees said she knows the secret to Tiffany Two’s long life.

“Tiffy’s just so devoted to me, she doesn’t want to leave me, but I think it could also have to do with her size. She’s only six pounds, and I know smaller dogs live longer than older dogs,” Voorhees explained.

Tiffany Two has also had a thriving love life.

“She’s had many boyfriends over the years,” Voorhees said. “One young male cat used to always run and want to see her even when she was already 13 or 14. I also used to have a big 20-pound black and white cat who she’d cuddle and spoon with.”

Voorhees previously had another cat named Tiffany One, but it died in the 1970s from cancer. She was later drawn to Tiffany Two when she saw her at a pet store a few years later.

“I saw the little kitty who looked just like my old Tiffany, and though I went home, I just kept thinking about it. They were both short-haired and black-and-orange tortoiseshell colored,” explained Voorhees.

Even though Tiffany Two is old in age, she’s still able to get around the house.

According to Voorhees, she can go up and down the stairs and goes outside when she pleases.
