The domestic shorthair was said to have passed on peacefully, surrounded by his loved ones.

29 human years

While the average lifespan of a cat is 15 years, Ginger lived to the ripe old age of 29.

That is more than 100 years old, in cat years.

He was just a few years shy from the world’s oldest cat, who is 31 years old.

According to JourneyEast, he was the “longest-living cat” that anyone they have met had ever encountered.
