According to Guinness World Records officials, Corduroy has become the oldest at 26 years and 13 days after the previous feline record-holder died at the age of 26 this June the 3rd.
The Oregon’s community of Sisters is currently caring about the feline pensioner Corduroy. As officials of the organization stated, the cat spends almost the whole day outside and they believe that it is the main secret of his longevity. The community is situated in the rural area of Oregon, about 100 miles southeast of Portland.
The average life of cats is nearly 15 years old, so Corduroy is a real record-breaker. The cat has belonged to Ashley Reed Okura since its cathood. She met this awesome animal when she was a kid of the age 7, according to Guinness representatives.
The secret has been allowing him to be a cat – hunting and getting plenty of love
– said once Reed Okura and added about her feelings to be the owner of the oldest living kitty:
We are thrilled! I bought Corduroy a mouse to celebrate… it is wonderful to share him with the world.
Guinness officials also stated that despite chasing mice, Corduroy also loved eating cheddar cheese a lot.
The last feline record-breaker was named Tiffany and lived in San Diego. The cat died at the age of almost 27.
However, the Guinness World Records spokesperson, Kristen Ott, said that the officials understand that there might be some cat older than Corduroy, but to prove their age the owners have to submit evidence, including cat’s videos through the years as well as statements of witnesses.
