SISTERS, Ore. - A 26-year-old cat named Corduroy has been named the oldest living cat by Guinness World Records.
The cat is owned by a family in the Oregon city of Sisters. His owner, Ashley Reed Okura, has had him since he was a kitten and she was 7.
Okura told The Oregonian that Corduroy is still active and in good health, except for some kidney problems. He still hunts on the family's 160-acre (65-hectare) property.
For his birthday Aug. 1, Okura bought him a live white mouse and says he enjoyed it "right away."
