    Scooter the Siamese cat was born during the Reagan administration and is the world's oldest cat, according to Guinness World Records. Scooter, who is owned by Gail Floyd, celebrated his 30th birthday on March 26, 2016.

    A Siamese cat born during President Ronald Reagan's administration has been named by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest cat.

    Guinness said Scooter celebrated his 30th birthday on March 26. He lives in Mansfield, Texas.

    Owner Gail Floyd attributes Scooter's longevity to staying active. She told 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.
