26-Year-Old 'Corduroy' Crowned World's Oldest Living Cat

After spending decades searching for the most comfortable spot on the couch and perfecting his "come pet me" purr, one aged feline has finally earned his time in the spotlight.

Twenty-six-year-old Corduroy, a handsome male kitty from the United States, was crowned the oldest living domestic cat this week by Guinness World Records. Corduroy's title replaces another venerable cat in the record book, Tiffany Two, who died recently at the ripe old age of 27 years, 2 months and 20 days.

Corduroy's age may not seem that impressive to long-living humans, but the cat's 26 years are notable for a domestic kitty. These animals have an average life span of only 12 to 15 years, according to Franny Syufy,'s resident cat expert, who has been writing about cats since Corduroy was a mere kitten.
