In an inspirational tale of feline perseverance and triumph, a onetime runt of the litter named Wadsworth may now be the oldest cat in England: He just turned 27. Waddy was doing "very poorly" when owner Ann Munday adopted him as a kitten. She nursed him back to health, watching him get stronger and stronger. Named after a beer, Wadsworth spent his youth in British pubs, but he now leads a quiet life at home. Munday says, "[He] doesn't really play anymore. … He's like a little old man really, he gets up, goes out, comes in, has his food" (he's fond of fish but not chips) "and then goes back to sleep." Age has its benefits. [Source]
