How many cats of a certain age?

I realize any answers will be speculation and not exact, but this board is good for well-reasoned speculation.

My family had a female house cat (Felis catus) who lived to be about four months shy of 22 years old. Not nearly Guinness territory of course, but still pretty old. Our vet said she was the oldest cat they had on record.

Which got me thinking, when she died, she was one of how many 21 year-old or older cats? At any given time, how many house cats 20 and older, 21 and older, 22 and older, etc., are there in the world?
