This Cat Was Adopted From A Shelter And Is Currently The Oldest Cat On Earth

The world’s oldest cat, 26-year-old Corduroy (that’s 121 in cat years), is the naughtiest pensioner cat around and is showing no signs of slowing down.

 

Corduroy holds the Guinness World Record title for the world’s oldest living cat (but still knows how to dress well).

Even though he’s on a special low-protein diet due to kidney problems, Corduroy is as healthy and active as ever.

“I strongly believe the key to his longevity is the fact we did not declaw him and allowed him to go outside,” says Corduroy’s human, Reed Okura.

Reed, whose family adopted Corduroy from a shelter when she was 7 years old, thinks this kitty’s adventurous spirit has kept him going well into old age.

“He was able to defend himself and exercise his body and mind by hunting. He still catches critters but is not as good as he once was, thankfully.”

“Every night he glides up our flight of stairs and jumps into our bed and sleeps with us…”

“…before waking us up every morning around 5am.”

But despite this energetic kitty’s early-morning wake up calls, he can mostly be found happily relaxing somewhere cozy.

“It is an honor to have Corduroy in our life, I honestly don’t remember much of my life without him.”

“He is a wonderful companion and I hope to give him a happy and healthy life for many more years.”

And, seeing as the longest-lived cat ever known reached an incredible 38 years, these lifelong friends have plenty of cuddle time ahead.

And according to Reed, this kitty is still young at heart: “Corduroy certainly does not act his age — he still jumps onto counters and jumps down.”
