Methuselah List

Maine Coons that have lived to the age of 15 years or greater

Longevity is an important factor in determining if your cat comes from a line of healthy cats. One part of a campaign for a healthy gene pool is identifying those cats which have lived to a ripe old age. Determining just what certain cats have died of can be impossible, identifying long lived cats should be much easier. On this page we'd like to compile a list of "Methuselahs", cats that have lived to the age of 15 years and beyond. 

If you have a Methuselah to nominate...

If you have a Methuselah to nominate, please fill out this questionnaire.

You can view the list of names of the cats on the Methuselah list below. For detail notes on the Methuselah nominations, click here. (Sire, Dam, fun stories, etc. - Interesting reading!)

More information about the pedigree and offspring of these cats can be found in the Maine Coon Database. And if you would like to see pictures of some Maine Coon cats who lived to be 15 years or older, go to the ancestors gallery!
