Cat with 9-inch fur sets Guinness World Record
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- He's quite the hair-raising local celebrity. Colonel Meow and his long locks made it into the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Records book, due out in September.
Owners Anne Marie Avey and Eric Rosario say the 2-year-old Himalayan-Persian mix got his name because of his frown and epic 9-inch fur.
Three independent veterinarians verified the length of the colonel's hair and submitted their findings to Guinness before he won the title.
His hair needs to be brushed two to three times a week and Avey and Rosario say it gets all over their Los Angeles home.
