Looking for your daily dose of ‘awwww?’ Look no further! Corduroy, an adorable 26-year-old cat, was just crowned the world’s oldest living cat! Congrats, little buddy!

Guinness World Records named Corduroy the cat “The Worlds Oldest Living Cat” on August 13! The feline was born on Aug. 1, 1989, which makes him way older than some of our favorite celebs, Selena Gomez, 23, Kylie Jenner, 18, and Justin Bieber, 21!


Mr. Corduroy spent most of his life exploring the countryside of Oregon with his owner, Ashley Reed Okura, according to a statement from Guinness World Records.

Ashley, who was only 7 when she picked Corduroy out of a litter of kittens, shared the secret to his long life. “The secret has been allowing him to be a cat, hunting and getting plenty of love. Growing up on 160 acres in Oregon, I allowed Corduroy to roam the ranch freely, so he always gets lots of exercises,” she said in a statement, according to USA Today.

Some of Corduroy’s hobbies include chasing mice and eating cheddar cheese, according to Guinness officials! How cute?!
