OREGON – An Oregon cat who held the title of the “World’s Oldest Cat” in the Guinness Book of World Records is missing and presumed dead.
Ashley Reed Okura, who is the owner of 27-year-old Corduroy, stated in an Instagram post that her cat left home on Oct. 9 and did not return.
Okura noted that Corduroy lived so long because he was very active, wasn’t de-clawed and could fend for himself in the wild.
Corduroy, who lives in Sisters, was stripped of his title earlier this year when the the Guinness Book of World Records stated a 30-year-old Siamese from Texas named Scooter was actually the world’s oldest, but that title was very short-lived. Guinness later learned that Scooter was dead.
Corduroy was given back his rightful title back in May of this year.
God bless you, Corduroy. You are already missed!
