Guinness World Records has named Corduroy the World’s Oldest Cat once again. The 26-year-old feline held the title back in 2014. He lost the record when Tiffany Two’s owners submitted her for the title. After the recent passing of Tiffany Two, Corduroy has reclaimed the title, Guinness World Records confirms.
Corduroy was born on August 1, 1989 and has had Ashley Reed Okura as his proud pet parent ever since he was a kitten. Okura was only 7 years old at the time, Guinness reports. In response to Corduroy’s title, Okura told Guinness, “We are thrilled! I bought Corduroy a mouse to celebrate… it is wonderful to share him with the world.”
Even though Corduroy holds the title of World’s Oldest Cat, he’s not the oldest cat who ever lived. That title goes to Crème Puff, who lived just over 38 years.
