Mews and Nips: Meet Corduroy, the World’s Oldest Living Cat


A 26-year-old cat from Sisters, Oregon, currently holds the Guinness World Record for oldest living cat. Corduroy has been with his human family since he was seven months old. According to the Telegraph, Corduroy has a fondness for cheddar cheese and catching mice. “The secret has been allowing him to be a cat – hunting and getting plenty of love,” guardian Ashely Reed Okura told the Telegraph.The gorgeous senior kitty is rapidly growing his following on Instagram.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, I shared the recording of a webinar about how animals help us find our bliss, on Monday, we talked about Leap Day, on Tuesday, we launched our month long 7th Anniversary celebration with a huge giveaway of seven grand prizes for you, on Wednesday, Clea Simon told us about why her newest book is a departure from her previous cozy mysteries, on Thursday, we reviewed the fabulous Cat Ladder, and on Friday, we reviewed Clea Simon’s new mystery, The Ninth Life.

    Brings "missing-you" tears for My Kitty. I had her since I found her a stray kitten. We were together for 23 years. Until we meet again…R.I.P. <3
