When I say 121 years that is equivalent to human years. If you do the calculations right then you will see that it is 26 short years of life for this cat. His name is Corduroy, and this year he has been recognized with the title as the “Oldest living cat in the world.” Also Corduroy has his species life expectancy by more than 10 years actually. It is really amazing to have a cat for 26 years, and watching it still living the loire at its fullest. I say so because the owner of this cat says that even though the age, Corduroy is still going strong y’all!
The proud owner of this beautiful cat is named Ashley Okura. When she speaks about her cat her eyes are filled with joy and she sure is proud of her baby! She says that she can’t remember a time when her cat wasn’t present in her life. She first met Corduroy when she was sic years old, and the cat was a little tiny kitten. Ever since the two of them become inseparable, and they still live together after 26years.
Her owner says: “We’re bonded. I’m used to his routine and he has a wonderful temperament and personality,” she told The Dodo. “Having him around all this time has been great.”
FYI this is the second time that Corduroy has been honored with this certificate from Guinness World Records. It was named once before, but in 2014 a cat took the “prize” from Corduroy because the other cat was 26 at that time. When the other cat passed away, Corduroy was honored again with this Certificate.
Since it is really rare for cats to live for so long, his mother has always been asked what is the secret to this cat? What does he do for having such a long, healthy life? She has said that he was always free up to the point to explore the wild world around him. “I honestly believe that by keeping Corduroy’s claws he was able to defend himself and go hunting outside. I think it’s good for the cat’s mental health to go outside and feel like a cat,” she said. “Don’t declaw your cat.”
His birthday in in August, and next year this amazing cat will be 27. We wish him a long, happy, life.
“He’s doing really well,” Okura said. “We’re already planning for his next party.”
Guinness World Records named Corduroy, a 26-year-old cat from Sisters, Oregon, as the world’s new oldest living cat on Thursday, August 12, 2015. Corduroy celebrated his 26th birthday on August 1. Corduroy has lived with Ashley Reed Okura of Sisters, Oregon, since he was a kitten and Okura was 7 years old.
