SISTERS , Ore., Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A cat once named the world's oldest by the Guinness Book of World Records has gone missing from it's home in Oregon.
Ashley Okura shared a photo of her cat Corduroy to Instagram, hoping to find her 27-year-old pet after he disappeared on October 9.
"Corduroy literally ran outside when we opened the door as we arrived home. We have not seen him since," she wrote.
Okura feared the worst for Corduroy suggesting he may have "crossed the rainbow bridge" and died after his escape.
"We miss him terribly and I hold out hope he will return," she said. "Logically, Corduroy won't come home."
Okura held onto hope that her record-setting feline companion would return home, but expressed gratitude for the long life he led.
"I am grateful we had an unbelievable, special, 27 years together," she said.
