Just William!

An elderly moggy, which is one of the UK’s oldest cats, is still causing mischief at the age of 23.

Despite William the cat having had a few health scares, regular trips to the local vet and the occasional bowl of his favourite treat – spaghetti bolognese – have kept him happy and healthy.

Helen Corrie, from Winstanley, Greater Manchester, adopted William,  who is 108 in human years,  in 1995 when he was less than one.

Helen said: “William is such a special cat and is still incredibly perky and active for his age.

“He has an annual check-up and blood test to make sure he is fit and healthy and it was recommended we put him on a special renal diet as older cats are susceptible to kidney problems. But he still loves his spaghetti bolognese when I make it for supper.”
