A Siamese cat born during President Ronald Reagan's administration has been named by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest living cat.
Guinness says Scooter celebrated his 30th birthday on March 26. He lives in Mansfield, Texas.
Owner Gail Floyd attributes Scooter's longevity to staying active. She tells Guinness he keeps busy by traveling and has visited 45 of the 50 states. Some of his favorite activities include getting blow-dried after baths and snacking on chicken every other day.
Scooter isn't Guinness' oldest cat of all time, though. That mark belongs to a fellow Texas cat, which lived to be 38.
