The cat that is believed to be world's oldest is missing and presumed dead


Corduroy the cat, the Oregon feline believed by the Guinness Book of World Records to be the oldest living cat on Earth, is missing and presumed dead.

Corduroy's human companion, Ashley Okura of Sisters, posted the news on Instagram this week.

She said the 27-year-old cat made a run for it the night of Oct. 9 and hasn't been seen since.

"Corduroy literally ran outside when we opened the door as we arrived home," Okura posted on Thanksgiving. "We have not seen him since. It is with a heavy heart I make this post, announcing that Corduroy has most likely crossed the rainbow bridge."

Okura was 6 when she picked a kitten from a litter in 1989.

She credited Corduroy's longevity to "letting him roam the property and catch critters and get exercise."

Okura's Instagram page, oldest living cat, has over 18,000 followers.
