Jake Perry had another cat, Grandpa Rex Allen, whom he said was born in Paris, Texas, in 1964 and died aged 34 years and 2 months in 1998; Grandpa was posthumously awarded 1999 Cat of the Year by Cats & Kittens magazine, and he was featured in an earlier version of the Guinness World Records as the (then) oldest cat ever.

Creme Puff's diet consisted of dry cat food supplemented with broccoli, eggs, turkey, bacon, and coffee with cream, a diet her owner, Jake Perry, held to be key to her longevity. Every two days, Creme Puff received "an eyedropper full of red wine", which Perry said "the arteries".

Perry also kept Creme Puff active within the home, turning his garage into a movie theater that played nature documentaries for his cats. Wooden steps were built into the walls of Perry's home for the cats to climb on, and Perry had built a screened enclosure in his backyard for his pets, including Creme Puff, to enjoy the outdoors.
