Last week, Guiness World Records, the group famously known for listing world records of human achievements and the extremes of the natural world, confirmed that Corduroy – a cat living in Oregon, US, is the Oldest cat living after he recently turned 26 years old.

That’s pretty impressive, when you consider that the average lifespan of our feline friends is typically about 15 years!

Corduroy was born on August 1, 1989. He’s owned by Ashley Reed Okura who has had him since she was just 7 years old and he was just a tiny kitten.

According to Guiness:

On learning about her beloved pet’s achievement, Ashley said, “We are thrilled! I bought Corduroy a mouse to celebrate … it is wonderful to share him with the world.”

Corduroy isn’t the oldest cat on record, by a long shot. He still has a few years to go to pass the record for the Oldest Cat Ever, Crème Puff, who was born in 1967 and lived until 2005 – an incredible 38 years and 3 days! We’re rooting for you, Corduroy!

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
