Meet Corduroy, the Oldest Cat in the World: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Say hello to Corduroy. He lives in Oregon with Ashley Reed Okura, and, at 26 years old, he`s the oldest documented living cat in the world, Guinness World Records officials confirmed this week.


Corduroy was born on Aug. 1 , 1989. He has a penchant for chasing mice and eating cheddar cheese, Reuters reported."

The lifespan for indoor cats ranges between 13 and 17 years, the lifespan for outdoor cats is much shorter due to the many perils they face outdoors.

Corduroy has lived an amazing 26 years, I wonder if he`s still entitled to nine lives? Congratulations to the Guinness World Records holder, may he enjoy many more years chasing mice and eating cheddar cheese.

There are plenty of kittens waiting for a forever home at your local animal shelter. They may not live for 26 years, but they will be a blessing to you every day.
