He’s The World’s Oldest Cat, Judging By The Photos He’s Getting Cuter With Age.
We're pretty certain that you've never come across a 121 year old cat before -- 121 in cat years, of course. Still, at 26 actual years, Corduroy is the oldest cat in the world. Amazingly, he shows no signs of slowing down.
Corduroy has mysteriously exceeded his life expectancy by more than 10 years, and he's been with owner Ashley Okura since he was a kitten.
"We're bonded. I'm used to his routine and he has a wonderful temperament and personality," Okura said in an interview. "Having him around all this time has been great."

This is actually the second time Guinness World Records has named Corduroy as the oldest cat in the world.. In 2014, he lost the title to a then-26-year-old cat named Tiffany II. When Tiffany II died, Corduroy was given the title again.
So, what's Corduroy's secret to longevity?
"I honestly believe that by keeping Corduroy's claws he was able to defend himself and go hunting outside," Okura said. "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."
Despite his age, Corduroy still keeps the other animals in check on the farm where he lives -- particularly the mice.
Corduroy's birthday was in August, and by the look on this face, it's going to be a great year.
