    In this Monday, December 3, 2012 photo provided by Guinness World Records, Colonel Meow, the cat with the longest fur, poses for a photo in Los Angeles. Colonel Meow has 9-inch (23-centimeter) hair. That's good enough to put the Himalayan-Persian mix into the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Records book, due out September 12, 2013. Owners Anne Marie Avey and Eric Rosario, of Los Angeles, say the 2-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.

In this Monday, December 3, 2012 photo provided by Guinness World Records, Colonel Meow, the cat with the longest fur, poses for a photo in Los Angeles. Colonel Meow has 9-inch (23-centimeter) hair. That's good enough to put the Himalayan-Persian mix into the 2014 edition of the Guinness World Records book, due out September 12, 2013. Owners Anne Marie Avey and Eric Rosario, of Los Angeles, say the 2-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.
