Fur real: Colonel Meow's hair sets record
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Colonel Meow has 23cm hair.
That's good enough to put the Himalayan-Persian mix into the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Records book, due out Sept 12.
Owners Anne Marie Avey and Eric Rosario, of Los Angeles, say the two-year-old cat got its name because of his epic frown and fur. It takes both of them to brush the cat's fur three times a week.
Three independent veterinarians verified the length of the colonel's hair and submitted their findings to Guinness before he won the title.
