The record-breaking feline previously held the record back in 2014, but lost out when the owners of Tiffany Two submitted a claim for the title. With Tiffany Two sadly recently passing away at the amazing age of 27 years, 2 months and 20 days, the record is now back in the hands of Corduroy.
Born on August 1 1989, Corduroy and his owner Ashley Reed Okura (USA) have been companions since he was a tiny kitten and she was just seven years old.
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.”
Nevertheless, Corduroy is still a few years off the Oldest cat ever, Crème Puff, who was born in 1967 and lived until 2005 – an incredible 38 years and 3 days (more than double the average life expectancy of the species).
Keep rockin' Corduroy. That all time record is in sight. I would tell you to take it easy, but you already probably have mastered that.
Congratulations you four-legged old sumbitch.
