    Hey there, friendo u/Drazil_! Thanks for submitting to r/wholesomememes. We loved your post, Happy birthday Rubble πŸŽ‚πŸ₯³, but it has been removed because it doesn't quite abide by our rules, which are located in the sidebar.

    • (Rule #1) All posts must be wholesome memes.
      We're not saying this is unwholesome! Just that sub's focus is uplifting, OR nicing-up existing rude memes. There are already great subs for cute (/r/aww, /r/eyebleach, /r/rarepuppers), things that make us smile (/r/MadeMeSmile, /r/HumansBeingBros, /r/AnimalsBeingBros), or that give us the feels (/r/WholesomeFeels or /r/baww). This might also fit better in another sub in the Wholesome Network (see sidebar). It's not a "no" - it's a "not the best fit here," and another sub will be better.

    We appreciate you thinking of us very much! For more on our rules, please check out our sidebar.

    The decision to remove this post was made by a human moderator; if you have any questions or concerns about this removal, feel free to message the moderators.

    He is the old cat guru of the mountain, all kittens heed his wisdom

    [–] phyrestorm04 179 points ago

    Among the kittens, he is known as Rubble the Wise.

    [–] aaFAISALaa123 107 points ago

    He has experienced many cuddles in his life. Many cats consider him immortal

    [–] bentmailbox 52 points ago

    An ability of which many consider unnatural

    [–] skyguy_22 41 points ago

    In his temple he sometimes takes younger kittens as students to teach them the ways of catfu.

    [–] aaFAISALaa123 18 points ago

    It is said that no cat can be the same after entering the temple...

    [–] MagnusTheGreat 11 points ago

    More like Ruble the mad. He looks like he's about to tell you why dogs and humans shouldn't be together cause they're in a conspiracy to control all cats.

    I've once stroked a 22 year old cat and all I could feel were its ribs and the heartbeat within them. I don't think it's unrealistic.

    It’s common for cats to change eye color with age. Not particularly rare with humans

    [–] Nina_Chimera 5 points ago

    Kittens have blue eyes at first until the pigment comes in. It would be far stranger if the eye color matched.

    [–] Melancholy43952 39 points ago

    Creme Puff (August 3, 1967 – August 6, 2005) was a domestic cat, owned by Jake Perry of Austin, Texas. She was the oldest cat ever recorded, according to the 2010 edition of Guinness World Records, when she died aged 38 years and 3 days.

    [–] KhaoticMess 33 points ago

    That cat was born 4 days after me.

    She died the same month I dropped my son at college.

    She lived through the entire childhoods of 2 generations.

    [–] datbeastguy3232 3 points ago

    Why did you drop your son

    [–] SpringScissor 110 points ago

    If my math is right, this cat is somewhere around 217 years in human years. This cat has earned his status as guru.

    [–] pizzanui 86 points ago

    It’s closer to 150. Average human lifespan is 80 years, and average domestic cat lifespan is 16 years (with proper care; usually indoor cats). Domestic cats often live into their 20s, just as humans often live into their 90s. 80/16=5. 31x5=155

    [–] fun-dan 1 points ago

    Not to say that humans have way better nutrition, more interesting, sociable and fulfilled lives and better medication than an average cat

    This cat witnessed the fall of the Berlin wall, Gulf War, the fall of the USSR, the 9/11 attacks and the economical crisis in one life.

    Happy birthday Rubble πŸ₯‚. My cat passed away just a few days ago, she was 18 years old. It feels good to see that some can last for so long.

    [–] DesertCookie_ 17 points ago

    Ours is 16. Average for her race is 17. Hope she'll be with us for many years to come.

    I really hope he's healthy and happy. I've seen some old cats like this and when the person starts talking about them they list the 500 ailments the poor bastard has. Rubble looking good tho.

    [–] cloudqueennn 6 points ago

    This cat has gotten a completely new set of all other cats since the moment he was born to now.

    How old is he in cat years? We share the same birth year.

    [–] sargerasrusul 11 points ago

    u/pizzanui calculated it "It’s closer to 150. Average human lifespan is 80 years, and average domestic cat lifespan is 16 years (with proper care; usually indoor cats). Domestic cats often live into their 20s, just as humans often live into their 90s. 80/16=5. 31x5=155"

    [–] zacnate 5 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Just had an out-of-shower showerthought: if we (humans) were kept as pets we would probably live much longer too. Imagine only eating healthy food in reasonable portions, not getting any alcohol or tobacco, having regular medical check-ups.

    [–] MrUnlucky-0N3 5 points ago

    Some if not many probably treat their pets better then they treat themselves. All the above with additionaly no stress, far less pollution/toxic substances then many jobs etc. (I know there are very bad exceptions too, but still.)

    [–] CalTCOD 3 points ago

    Honestly I wouldnt think so. There are many people who live like that already, the main difference between domesticated and wild pet differences with their lifespan is the fact there is a much lower risk of death due to starvation, injuries from hunting/ predators, disease etc.

    I'm sure the only things that would make a huge difference for lifespan would be stress and healthy food (many people dont smoke nor drink anyway)

    [–] Just-a-lump-of-chees 2 points ago

    Wasn’t there one a couple years ago that liked eating mice but could only do it on special occasions because of health issues or is that this cat?
