SISTERS, OR – A new feline is taking over the internet, but we’re not talking about Hello Kitty or Grumpy Cat. The online buzz is all about Corduroy.

At first glance, he might not look special, but he just celebrated his 26th birthday. That makes the kitty the oldest living cat, but not the oldest ever.

That honor goes to Creme Puff, a cat out of Austin lived to the ripe old age of 38 years and 3 days, but still Corduroy’s age is nothing to sneeze at.

He’s older than half the cast of Harry Potter, Jennifer Lawrence, and her Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth.

His owners don’t buy any of that nine lives nonsense. They say Corduroy’s secret to longevity is, wait for it,  being a cat. His owners mean exploring the central Oregon outdoors hunting mice.

Here’s to many more years – and mice – to come.
