SISTERS, Ore., Aug. 14 (Ben Hooper) — An Oregon cat that turned 26-years-old Aug. 1 has reclaimed the title of the world’s oldest living cat, Guinness World Records confirmed.
The record-keeping organization said Corduroy, owned by Ashley Reed Okura of Sisters, Ore., held the title of the world’s oldest living cat in 2014, but surrendered the title when a cat named Tiffany Two was found to be older
Tiffany Two died recently at the age of 27 years, 2 months and 20 days, giving the title back to Corduroy.
Corduroy, who is a little more than four months older than pop star Taylor Swift, has been with Okura since he was a kitten.
“We are thrilled! I bought Corduroy a mouse to celebrate … it is wonderful to share him with the world,” Okura said.
The oldest-ever cat, Crème Puff, died in 2005 at the age of 38 years and 3 days old.
