Veteran tabby Nutmeg has outlived all of his ninelives to become the world's oldest cat at the grandold age of 31.

一只名叫肉豆蔻的老虎斑猫已经活得比九条命还要长了,它以31岁的高龄成为了当今世界上最长寿的猫。
That makes the OAP – old age pussycat – 141 inhuman years. Despite having just three teeth andbeing no longer willing to venture outside lookingfor adventure, Nutmeg is still going strong.
这只“可以领退休金”的老猫相当于人类的141岁。尽管只剩下了三颗牙齿,也不再愿意去室外探险,但肉豆蔻还是很健康。
He inherits the title from Scooter, a Siamese from Mansfield, who was named a record breakerat the age of 30 by the Guinness Book Of World Records but died in May.
肉豆蔻是从Scooter手中接过的这个头衔,那是一只来自曼斯菲尔德的暹罗猫,曾经在30岁的时候打破了吉尼斯世界纪录,成为了最长寿的猫,但是在同年五月份去世了。
The average lifespan of a cat is about 15 years. However Nutmeg's owners Liz and Ian Finlay saythe secret to their cat's long life is being spoilt rotten.
普通猫咪的寿命大约是15年,但是肉豆蔻的主人丽思和伊恩·芬利表示,他们让宠物猫长寿的秘诀就是溺爱。

The couple, from Tyne and Wear, confess to regularly feeding him treats including tuna, creamand hot roast chicken.

来自泰恩威尔郡的这对夫妇称,他们通常喂肉豆蔻的食物包括金枪鱼、奶油和烤鸡。
Ian, 66, said: "Nutmeg has been very well cared for. He has his own room in the house."
66岁的男主人伊恩说道:“肉豆蔻得到了非常细致认真的照顾,它在这个家中甚至有自己的房间。”
Nutmeg has accompanied Ian and shop worker Liz, 62, through life as they celebratedlandmark wedding anniversaries, moved home and mourned the loss of loved ones.
肉豆蔻一直陪伴在伊恩和已经62岁的车间工人丽思的身边:无论是庆祝结婚纪念日、搬家或是当他们沉浸在失去亲人的苦痛中的时候。
Liz added: "Nutmeg is like a lovable old grandpa. He is very gentle."
丽思补充说道:“肉豆蔻像是一位可敬的老爷爷。他非常绅士。”
But she admitted: "He has changed as he has got older – just like humans do. He is grumpiernow and his meow is more like a growl.
但是她也承认:“随着年龄的增加,它也在变化--就像人类一样。现在的它性格暴躁而且声音更像是在咆哮。”
"He had a stroke last year and the vet told us we might want to consider putting him down. Wedecided that if he was going to die it would be with us at home, but he slowly recovered."
“去年它中风了,当时兽医告诉我们,可能要考虑放下它了。我们当时想,如果它真的要死了,也要在我们的怀中、在家里离世,但是它竟然慢慢的康复了。”
