The world's oldest cat, which celebrated her 24th birthday a few weeks ago, has passed away.
Poppy was born in England in 1990, on the same month Nelson Mandela was released from prison.
Although her owners knew she was very old and she had been ill, it still upset them very much that she passes away: "We knew she was old, but it's still very upsetting. She had a bad week last week. She was on antibiotics on the Wednesday because of a water infection and her back legs just seemed to let her down. She wasn't herself at all."
