This Handsome Champ Is The World’s Oldest Domestic Cat
Cats are known to have nine lives, but this cat from Oregon, United States has surpassed this old saying almost literally. This miracle cat is known as Corduroy. The name of Corduroy has been added to the Guinness Book of World records as the oldest living cat on earth at 26 years. Cats are known to have better ability to survive accidents or mishaps as compared to dogs, making them all the more interesting as pets. The life story of Corduroy is very interesting due to his ability to not give up. Even though this cat is 26 years, it refuses to act like one, by jumping onto countertops and equally enjoying his outdoor sessions at this age.
Meet Corduroy! The Oldest Cat In The World’s
Corduroy was born on August 1st, 1989 as a male domestic cat in Oregon, United States. Corduroy has lived with Ashley Reed Okura since she picked him up from a litter, when Ashley was 6 years old. Corduroy has his name written in the Guinness Book of world record after the passing off of the Tiffany Two, a cat that has lived for 27 years, 2 months and 20 days. Nutmeg, a tabby cat celebrated his 31st birthday and has been with his owners since the last 26 years. When Corduroy was adopted by Ashley, his brother Batman also came home with the family that same day. Batman was not as lucky as his brother Corduroy and lived only for 19 years. Corduroy is a Maine Coon cat breed, which has an average lifespan of 12 to 15 years, but this strong feline has doubled that. He is 120 years in people’s years.
