Pour one out for Poppy, the late "world's oldest cat," having died just weeks after obtaining the title. It's a good way to go, for a cat—climbing the pyramid of longevity, eating cakes of salmon and spam, laying in the rare British sun (one imagines)—and then saying thanks for the trophy, but goodbye to all that.

That's a cat old enough to drink, by American laws. Probably should've.
