The 26-year-old feline claimed the record after the death of Tiffany Two, a cat that lived for 27 years, 2 months and 20 days.

'He is such a mellow, cool old cat'

Corduroy, now 26 and 13 days, has lived with the Okura family all his long life. His owner, Ashley Reed Okura (33) got him when he was just six years old. He's still purring away and in good health, Ashley said, apart from the occasional problems with his kidneys. "We are thrilled!" she told Guinness, according to their press release.

"He is such a mellow, cool old cat and it is wonderful to share him with the world. … Corduroy has been through all of my life's major events and I feel blessed he is still healthy and enjoying life. We hope to continue to give him a good life for years to come."

Though Corduroy currently the oldest living cat in the world, he better hold on if he wants to break the record for the oldest cat ever. That honour belonged to Cream Puff of Austin, Texas , who lived until three days before her 38th birthday in 2005.
